Frequently Asked Questions

Who enrolls in the Program?

Many of our students are presently teaching; however, we also have group home employees, nurses, ministers, mental health professionals and homemakers who are working toward obtaining a Master’s degree, credential or certificate. Applicants do not need a teaching credential for program admission. Having the teaching credential may make a difference in obtaining a position as a school counselor. Some districts require, or prefer, that their counselors have a teaching credential.

When are the courses offered?

Courses are offered during the late afternoon (4:30-7:10) or evening (7:20-10:00) hours. Our goal is to offer every course twice per year. However, this is subject to enrollment and budget fluctuations; some years, a course only may be offered once.

The majority of program coursework is offered at the Turlock campus, but some PCC courses are only offered at the Stockton Center.
