4 College Student

Academic Flexibility: Sometimes my work gets in the way of my studying. I work late night shifts and I really hate being late for school or completely sleepy in most of my class because of work. But the during the times I'm fully awake I really enjoy my school and what it has to offer.

College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I won't be able to transfer this year due to the fact that I can't get the classes I need.

Class schedules at Pasadena City College are very flexible. Pasadena City College has a great academic team working through the whole semester to ensure that the available classes fit in students’ schedules. The earliest class on campus begins at 7 a.m., and the latest class on campus ends at 10:15 p.m. There are also weekend classes available, which can be helpful toward completing your program of study.

Registering for classes early is highly recommended. Some of the more popular introductory classes fill up fast. Generally, students tend to have difficulty enrolling in certain classes if they register too late and rarely get a chance to get in a class by simply "walking in." So get there early! Other than that, registration is easy to process online; students can finish scheduling their classes from home. Pasadena City College also provides a solution center that assists students with any type of technical problem they might encounter with online registration.
