Baccalaureate Degree Pilot Program

On September 28, 2014, California Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 850 (Block) authorizing the Board of Governors of California's Community Colleges (BOG), in consultation with representatives of the California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC), to establish a statewide baccalaureate degree pilot program at no more than 15 California Colleges. The Board of Governors was charged to develop a process for selection of the pilot programs.

As the Chancellor's Office goal is to have 15 colleges in the Baccalaureate Degree Pilot Program, there is one opening and potentially two more depending upon the consultation outcomes.
