- Flexible scheduling and support resources such as tutoring, counseling, career planning and health and wellness
- Late-start classes which start at different times throughout the semester and offer the same amount of credits in a more condensed timeframe
- An opportunity to transfer to a four-year university or college with guaranteed junior status after two years at a California community college
