Paving, Excellence, Retention, Success in Student Trajectories (PERSIST) is design to meet the needs of students who are in their sophomore year of college.

The program serves students who have a cumulative 2.4 grade point average and above. 

Sophomore Sessions

As a part of PERSIST, our central aim is to help you re-enroll in subsequent semesters and to help you graduate from the institution. In order to do this, you must strive to:

  • Re-enroll each term
  • Take a productive set of units (15 or more units each term to graduate on time)
  • Select the right courses in conjunction with your major
  • Develop advocacy skills to position you for life beyond college
