Higher Education Model

The model is shaped in a triangle to reflect the number of students who work upwards towards higher educational goals. The model indicates approximately how many years and units it takes full time to complete a particular level on the pyramid. It also indicates the number of quarter units associated with being a freshman, sophomore, junior and senior. Finally, the model indicates what courses are transferable to CSUs and UCs.
