Academic Programs

Chaffey College offers courses that parallel the first 2 years (lower division) at 4-year colleges and universities. Because requirements vary among these institutions, students are encouraged to choose the college or university to which they plan to transfer as early in their educational career as possible. Students should concentrate on meeting admission requirements for their major and general education courses while attending Chaffey College.

Although we offer English language support classes, we do not offer short-term ESL or English Intensive Program.
