At this time, students who do not physically live in California are not permitted to take fully online courses from Pasadena City College.
Federal regulation requires institutions offering distance education to acquire authorization from any U.S. state in which it “operates.” PCC does not have the required permission for students from other states to take courses at PCC. This permission is required to maintain eligibility for students of that state to receive federal financial aid.
Until further notice, PCC is not filing for authorization to operate in other states. We recommend that students seeking community college courses look for classes offered from an institution in their own state.
