Established in 1924, Pasadena City College, (PCC), has been serving the West San Gabriel Valley for 96 years. PCC enrolls more than 29,500 students each semester and offers 107 academic degree programs and 72 Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs to its students. PCC serves one of the most culturally diverse student populations in the nation. The College sets the stage for preparing students to meet the demands of a changing world. Building relationships with community partners provides opportunities for PCC faculty and its students to engage in opportunities not often available to students in other areas.

The main college campus occupies a 53-acre site, while the Foothill Community Education Center and Child Development Center are located in separate nearby off-campus facilities. Due to the geographic size of the District, PCC has two additional satellite sites - the Rosemead Center and its newest site, PCC Northwest at John Muir High School. For more information, go to


PCC has many institutional strengths that distinguish it among its peers, both in the state and across the nation. Among them are:

A highly multicultural student body:

  • 47% Latino/a/x
  • 4% Black/African American
  • 27% Asian
  • 4% Two of More Races
  • 15% White
  • 3% Unknown/Other

Annually, at 49%, the College achieves recognition for one of the highest rates for transfer degrees to baccalaureate level institutions, both in California and across the nation. Additionally, PCC boasts a 52% bachelor's degree attainment rate for Pasadena graduates who transfer to a four-year university, compared to 42% nationally. The College is well known for national mathematics and forensic honors, as well as its extensive study abroad opportunities.

PCC was once again named one of ten national finalists for the 2019 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence, widely recognized as the nation's premier honor for two-year colleges. The Aspen Prize recognizes institutions for their outstanding outcomes in four areas: student learning; certificate and degree completion; employment and earnings; and high levels of access and success for minority and low-income students.

PCC is ranked by the Military Times as the top community college in California for military veterans, and the College is similarly ranked among the top community colleges in the nation. The PCC Courier, the student newspaper, is a perennial award winner.

Twelve students are elected annually by the PCC Associated Students to represent and advocate on behalf of the student body. There are 80 student clubs and organizations representing the interests of a culturally diverse student population.

In February 2017, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges of the Western Association of School and Colleges reaffirmed PCC's status as a fully accredited institution. For more information, go to
