Our Pathways provide a cohort experience that meets students where they’re at academically and guarantee an efficient path to graduation. This model puts students in cohorts of like-minded peers with similar academic and work experience levels who together navigate a two or four-year pathway, depending on their needs.
Designed for those interested in early childhood education with no prior experience, but wish to pursue a bachelor’s degree in ECE.
Students enter at the “freshman level” and complete 60 units of lower division and 60 units of upper division required courses.
EDvance College was built to remove barriers that traditionally prevent students from enrolling in higher education. With that in mind, EDvance College does not use standardized tests or previous grades as a measure of academic success. As a college, we believe that experience and willingness to learn matters just as much as grades. We believe that students can succeed in a program that is intentionally designed and provides the necessary wrap-around support services.
