Black Collegians Program Umoja Community
The Black Collegians Program Umoja Community at SMC is designed to assist students of African American descent in transferring to a 4 year university. Our program counselors offer academic, career, and personal counseling to help students achieve their academic goals.
On average, Black Collegians Umoja students have statistically higher GPAs than African American students who are not in the program.
BC students persist to the next fall term at a higher rate than African American students who are not in the program.
First-time freshman students and continuing students in the program successfully complete their enrolled courses at a higher rate than students who are not.
