Our college program at San Quentin State Prison offers college preparatory and credit courses, leading to an Associate of Arts Degree in General Education, and/or coursework necessary to transfer to any California State University or University of California campus. The sole requirement for participation is a high school diploma or GED. No student is excluded from the program based on age, length of sentence, commitment offense, or time left to serve. Students pay no fees or tuition. All textbooks and school supplies are provided by the Prison University Project and through donations from publishers.
