Setting the Seminar credits straight

IMG_9463 (2)

Last year the school established a Seminar class designed to help incoming freshmen to set long-term goals for their future, and discover what direction they wanted to move toward for their careers and post-high school plans.
In addition to taking the class, Seminar teachers told their students they would receive college credit for completing the class. However, when Kevin Herington, who was originally in charge of the seminar program left the district, false rumors began to circulate that classes would not provide credits.
“If the students want those credits, when they go to PCC, they can request the transcripts from PCC and it will be on their transcript as a business class,” Mr. Richard Lohman said. “Because they are no longer high school credits, but community college credits.”
When the PCC staff came in to tell each seminar class about the course and aid students through the admission process students were again informed that they would be able to receive college credits.
However, in order to redeem the college credits, students have to go to the PCC’s admissions office and use the LancerPoint ID number that was emailed to all Seminar students by the PCC Admissions office, in order to get their transcripts with their business class credits. The transcripts with their credits will be transferrable to most colleges.
The sophomores this year will be able to collect their transcript at the Pasadena City College and follow up on a 10 year plan that they had formulated during their seminar class with their counselor.
