Glendale residents who want to attend classes at Pasadena City College will be able to do so without any restrictions as of July 1, under the terms of an agreement approved by the Glendale Community College Board of Trustees.
Previously, students from Glendale and Pasadena who wanted to enroll in more than 10 hours of classes a week at the other city's college had to obtain permission from their resident district.
The new "free-flow" agreement approved by Glendale trustees was passed by the Pasadena City College Board of Trustees last month.
Glendale Community College President Rex Craig said the pact will not significantly alter the enrollment at either college. About 330 Glendale residents now attend school in Pasadena and about 290 students from Pasadena are enrolled in Glendale.
Limits on Recruitment
In approving the agreement, the board of trustees said in a written statement that education is best served when students are allowed to attend the community college of their choice rather than being forced to enroll at any one school. The agreement, however, prohibits either school from recruiting students within the other city's borders.
