Information Nights Offered for Prospective Students at PAC

To better assist high school seniors with the transition to collegiate life, College of the Canyons will offer Information Nights on Jan. 16 and 17 at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center (PAC) and at the college’s Canyon Country campus on Thursday, Jan. 18.

The Information Nights will provide prospective students and their families with information regarding admissions, how to earn priority registration, and other key student support programs and services including the College’s First-Year Promise program, which gives incoming students the opportunity to attend COC for free during their first year.

“Information Nights are incredibly helpful for new students and their families to better understand the admissions process and to become familiarized with the many programs and services offered by the college,” said Kari Soffa, director of Outreach and School Relations at the college.

The presentations, provided in English and Spanish, will review the various educational pathways available to students including transfer preparation, associate degrees and certificates, and the First-Year Promise program.

The English and Spanish presentations will be held in the PAC and Student Center Cafeteria (SSC), respectively, 6:30 to 8 p.m.

The Canyon Country information night presentations in English and Spanish will be held in Room 402 and Room 403, respectively, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Additionally, two Information Nights will be held for high school students who will be concurrently enrolled at COC:

  • 6:30 – 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 31 – PAC (English), SSC (Spanish)
  • 6:30 – 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 1 – Room 402 (English), Room 403 (Spanish)

Admission to all Information Night events is free and open to the public.

Parking in all student lots will be free for the duration of the events.
