HBCU Transfer Guarantee Project

My community college experience was rather much different than most. I first started my community college journey by going to Chaffey Community College in Rancho Cucamonga in the summer of 2008, just after I graduated from Damien High School. After struggling to just find some stability in my life I then attended Los Angeles Trade Technical College in 2011. Since then I’ve done the best I can with continuing my education but was not able to fully commit to until 2015. With that, I went to Moreno Valley College.
