At Pasadena City College, two high school students from the El Monte Union High School District were recipients of “Honors at Entrance.” To qualify for this prestigious award, applicants must graduate from their high school with a minimum unweighted 3.50 G.P.A. (Grade Point Average) and enroll in 12 or more units at P.C.C. Recipients of Honors at Entrance receive a scholarship award, qualify to join the prestigious academic Alpha Gamma Sigma Honor Society, and will bear on their P.C.C. academic record the designation of “Honoree at Entrance.”
Scholarship funds are provided by the Pasadena City College Foundation and the Pasadena City College Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA). P.C.C. is the only institution of higher education in the whole United States with a PTSA. The PTSA at P.C.C. is over 50 years old and continues to actively serve the student/family community at P.C.C.
