PACE A.A. Degree & Transfer Program for Working Adults

 "PACE: Program for Adult College Education"

Chabot College’s PACE Degree & Transfer Program in Hayward is now accepting applications for Spring 2018 classes starting in January 2018!


Multi-semester Learning Community

PACE offers evening and online classes in a comprehensive, multi-semester Learning Community which provides a streamlined pathway toward college graduation and CSU transfer.  PACE provides courses which satisfy both the A.A. Degree and CSU General Education transfer requirements, and offers two built-in majors requiring no additional classes.  We coordinate closely with the CSU East Bay PACE Program, although other degrees and transfer institutions are also available.


For Working Adults

PACE is especially good for people who work 9am-5pm and who wish to pursue degrees in Social Science, Education, or Business.  PACE is designed for students who are at or near the beginning of their college career, who have 0-20 units of general education classes already completed. 


Evening & Online Classes

PACE offers a combination of online and evening courses to meet both A.A. degree and CSU transfer requirements (for students who want to earn a Bachelor’s degree), and includes 18-23 courses; 1/3-1/2 of the classes can be done online.


How to Apply  

See www.chabotcollege.edu/PACE and follow the instructions “How to Apply for PACE”. Attending a 1-hour PACE Orientation is mandatory for admission to the program.  Allow 2-4 weeks to process PACE Applications.

We recommend:

  • Apply to Chabot College online at www.chabotcollege.edu prior to attending a PACE Orientation
  • Choose one Orientation to attend. Be on time and stay for the whole hour.  No RSVP is required.
  • Bring your completed PACE application with you (see www.chabotcollege.edu/PACE for application form)
  • Attend an earlier Orientation for best enrollment options.



The deadline for submission of PACE Applications for Spring 2018 Admission is December 5. Enrollment for Spring classes occurs in November & December, so early application (and PACE Orientation attendance) is strongly recommended.
