The Proficiency in American Culture and English (PACE) Learning Community is designed for non-native speakers of English to help them accelerate through to transfer-level English (ENGL 100/105).

PACE students enroll in a set sequence of classes that focus on English composition, grammar and American history.

Students can expect additional support from instructors, information about programs, services and how to transfer, and a designated ESOL Counselor.
