The focus of the C2C program is to provide students with the education, training, and tools necessary to obtain jobs related to each student's unique set of abilities, skills, and interests. The College to Career program is an approximately three year program (tailored to each student) with end goals leading to competitive integrated employment (CIE) for each student. Shasta College's C2C program aims to prepare students for competitive employment that is:

Paid at a rate of minimum wage or higher
Paid at a rate comparable to non-disabled workers performing the same tasks
Not short-term or of limited work hours that are less than what the C2C graduate would like to be working
Not a sheltered workshop, any employees with disabilities are integrated with non-disabled staff in the workplace
Fitting to their stated interests

Students will enroll in courses related to their education and employment plans tailored to career readiness. The students will participate in job shadowing, volunteer, or internships during their time in the program, to support their successful transition into competitive employment at the end of the program. Most students typically start with classes designed to help them make the academic transition from high school to college level work. Students work regularly with program staff to develop and reach their goals, including academic and employment plans.

The Shasta College C2C Program started accepting students in the 2015-2016 academic year. Twenty new students are accepted each year.
