What is the Puente Program?
The Puente Program is a national award winning program that has helped thousands of students transfer to a university, earn degrees and return to the community as leaders and mentors to future generations.
The Puente Program is open to all students and is designed to meet the needs of students impacted with low rates of degree completion and low rates of enrollment at four-year colleges.
Students come from all cultural and ethnic backgrounds and are usually the first in their families to attend college.
Community colleges with Puente programs transfer significantly more students to the University of California than colleges without Puente.
Students in Puente work closely with their Counselor, English instructor, and Mentor to prepare for transfer to four-year university.
Puente students will participate in the following components: Counseling, English Instruction and Mentoring.
