With the COVID-19 pandemic and the recession elevating the importance of a quality education, San Joaquin Delta College is making it easier for students to identify their career interests and achieve their goals promptly.

The new effort, known as “Mustangs Moving Forward,” has been under development for several years but is even more relevant in this COVID era.

Among other changes, Delta students are now automatically enrolled into the College’s new Transfer and Career Pathways, or TrACs, which give students a clear understanding of their career path options and provide them with special support from professors, counselors, librarians, and a new team of “success coaches.”

Ultimately, this approach is expected to improve student success rates and reduce the amount of time needed for students to transfer to a university or begin a new career right out of Delta College.

Information about the new TrACs along with a video overview of Mustangs Moving Forward are now available at Open registration for Spring Semester is underway, with most classes offered online. Tuition is free for first-time, full-time college students and those who meet certain income requirements.

“We are proud to be among the first community colleges in the state to adopt this new structure to better support students from the day they enroll at Delta to the day they finish their educational journey here,” said Dr. Omid Pourzanjani, Superintendent/President at Delta College. “We invite current Delta students, along with future students, parents, and community partners, to explore our new TrACs and learn more about the educational possibilities Delta offers. I believe that our College’s renewed focus on student success will be key to helping our region recover from the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
