The Korean-language website will ensure critical information about financial aid, Career Education, Associate Degree for Transfer, and more is accessible to Californians
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The California Community Colleges ICanGoToCollege.com (I CAN) awareness and outreach campaign kicked off Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage (AAPI) month with the launch of its full website in Korean to broaden its language offerings and engage an even greater percentage of California’s diverse AAPI community.
The California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office is committed to ensuring students from all backgrounds succeed in reaching their goals and improving their families and communities. Providing culturally responsive resources like the Korean I CAN website helps achieve this vision. This is especially true during AAPI Heritage Month, when community college campuses throughout the state are celebrating the achievements of generations of Asian American and Pacific Islanders who have contributed to America’s rich history.
The new I CAN Korean website provides current and prospective students and families with a one stop shop for important in-language information, including the availability of career education programs, guaranteed transfer to four-year universities, financial aid, and support services for food, housing, childcare, mental health and much more. The website also offers information on dual enrollment, a program that provides high school and adult students the opportunity to take college courses to earn credit toward their GED or high school diploma and their college degree at the same time.
Community college is an affordable and accessible way for Californians to attain a high-quality higher education. Studies show that the average community college graduate with an associate degree will see an increase in earnings of $11,100 annually when compared to a person with only a high school diploma or equivalent. And, many California community college graduates continue their higher education journey and transfer to a four-year university. In fact, 29% of University of California graduates and 51% of California State University graduates started at a California community college.
