Students may participate in any number of specialized guided or accelerated programs based on their academic, personal, and career goals.

A cohort is a group of students that travels together on a common path towards graduation. These students form a 'learning community,' which has become a popular and effective model in many community colleges across the country. Students in learning communities make strong connections with other students and participate in powerful learning experiences, which improves academic success. Being part of a learning community goes beyond co-registration and social interaction, in that it enables students to collaborate during their course of study as they build academic skills and content knowledge.
