The GAP4+1 program at IVC has been a game-changer for my academic and professional journey. Through this exceptional program, I secured two valuable internships during my early college years and benefited from having exclusive classes reserved for program participants at IVC and CSUF. This unparalleled support has allowed me to thrive both academically and personally. The internship experience provided me with practical skills and real-world exposure, while the reserved classes at CSUF ensured a seamless transfer and a focused learning environment. Thanks to GAP4+1, I have gained a competitive edge and the confidence to pursue my passion for Computer Science. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity, and it has undoubtedly set me on a path toward a successful and fulfilling future.

The GAP 4 + 1 Program did a great job in teaching me about the opportunities in the accounting industry, exposing us to many accounting firms (including Big 4), and providing us workshops on the best ways to secure internship opportunities. By taking advantage of these opportunities provided by the GAP program, I was able to secure an internship from Crowe and Ernst and Young
