We have selected colleges and universities that are reasonably close to Pasadena and that offer in-class teaching, as opposed to solely online courses. While Pasadena City College (PCC), University California Los Angeles (UCLA) and the various California State Universities such as Northridge, Los Angeles, and Fullerton are public, Occidental College (Oxy) and University of Southern California (USC) are private.
UCLA admission is extremely competitive. Whether you consider getting a diploma or just want to maintain your knowledge on a specific subject, we encourage you to research each school on your own.
