The fall semester is almost upon us and students are beginning to plan their schedule for the upcoming academic year. For those students who may be considering taking on a fuller load of classes, the state of California is giving students more incentives to do so.

The American Dream is a national belief of the United States that every US citizen should have an equal opportunity to achieve prosperity and success through determination, persistence, and hard work. Partnerships between government, public corporations and organizations, along with private enterprise, have been an embodiment in the creation of this American Dream, and an essential aspect of Workforce Development.
Policymakers, corporations, and the public, have regarded workforce development as a fundamental objective of community colleges (CC), training for future employment, and providing the labor market with skilled workers. Community colleges are essential engines of local and regional workforce and economic development providing technical and vocational learning, making education more viable and affordable to students from all backgrounds.
