About Us

Whom do we serve?

The Transitional Studies program serves students who show an ability to benefit from college-level instruction. Its students fall into two categories: its own program students (TS01) and students from other programs throughout the college.

Both groups register for TRS courses to develop basic skills needed for degree or certificate programs as well as for personal growth.

Program students also receive support through personalized advisement and through Student Support Services, the Academic Foundations Learning Center, the ESOL/TRS Mastery Lab, and two Writing Centers.

Program Goals

The Transitional Studies program seeks to:

  • Upgrade skills required for college coursework.
  • Develop attitudes that will lead to academic success.
  • Help its program students (TS01) to successfully make program changes or meet transfer requirements.
  • Improve academic skills needed for career success and personal growth.
