Matriculation is a process designed to assist students in achieving their educational goal at Pierce College. It is an agreement between the College and the student. Pierce College agrees to provide an organized process of admission, orientation, assessment, counseling, and student progress follow-up. The student agrees to declare a specific goal, attend class, and complete all assigned course work.
The purpose of Matriculation is to ensure that students complete their college courses, persist to the next academic term and achieve their educational objective. Matriculation provides students with easy access to the College's programs and services. These services can promote higher grades, completion of more classes, and increased persistence from semester to semester.
