“This is about student success. It is about helping students to the finish line to graduation—all students, especially those who may have had to pause their college journey.” — Sabrina Sanders, director, Toro Reengagement Program

​CSU Dominguez Hill has launched a new program designed to help students who left the university before completing their degree. Once a Toro, Always a Toro is a degree completion pathway that removes many of the barriers that often dissuade former students from re-enrolling, giving them the confidence to re-launch their career goals, improving their earning potential, and exemplifying college completion for themselves, their family, and their community.

“CSUDH students who have paused their education often cite the challenges of balancing work, school, family obligations, financial hardships, and personal challenges,” said Sabrina Sanders, who oversees the program. Once a Toro, Always a Toro is CSUDH’s commitment to providing an equitable, student-centered experience which fosters a sense of belonging.”
