About the TechCore Program

TechCore is a cohort program for students on a guided pathway to an Associate Degree for Transfer in Computer Science (ADT-CS).

Research shows that women, Black, Latinx, and Pacific Islander individuals, and low-income individuals are underrepresented in STEM disciplines in higher education and in the workplace.

Our program provides students from underrepresented groups in the STEM field a shared learning experience to ensure their success in the transfer pathway.

Additionally, cohort programs have been proven to contribute to successful attainment of goals, such as a transfer degree, for all students. TechCore aims to break stereotypes of who can be successful in STEM by equipping students with tools and supports in both academic and work-based settings.

TechCore is open to all students. Eligible students may receive two years free tuition and textbooks through the Foothill College Promise program.
