PACE - Program for Adult College Education at DVC

Are you working full-time? Juggling a very busy life?  You might want to consider PACE – a learning community program that offers classes with the working adult population in mind. With DVC PACE, you can earn your certificate, associate degree, or transfer to a four-year college/university while balancing family, career, and scheduling demands.

PACE classes are scheduled in a variety of ways:

  • Face-to-face
  • 100% online
  • Hybrid format (part of the course is online but will also include some face-to-face meetings)

The scheduling of the face-to-face meeting component depends upon the class and can be either just a few times over the course of the semester, one or more evening per week, or selected Saturdays each month.

Note:  The PACE Program is not designed for, nor can it accommodate, students looking for one or two classes to fill out their schedule.
