An initiative intended to foster a college-going culture in East Los Angeles will grant guaranteed admission to Cal State L.A. to certain students at Garfield High School and East Los Angeles College, officials announced Thursday.
The collaborative program, named “GO East LA: A Pathway for College and Career Success,” promises enrollment at Cal State L.A. and East L.A.
