Community College Students Have Uphill Battle to Transfer
September 29th, 2010

Public school college admissions are far more rigid and unforgiving than in years past, said Kevin Meza, who runs the transfer center at Glendale Community College…”It’s the first time universities are actively trying to find ways to not admit students,” he said. “They’re not trying to be malicious. They don’t have the funds to support it…. I can’t make those promises; that stopped two years ago,” he said. “Now I say, ‘Trust me, we’re doing the best we can to make you competitive.'”

Perhaps most important for the entire family, the Head Start College program paces students to complete their applications by Thanksgiving.
