Matriculation, which is a State-mandated program in the California Community Colleges, is a process that enhances student access to the California Community Colleges and promotes and sustains the efforts of both credit and non-credit students to be successful in their educational endeavors. The goals of matriculation are to ensure that all students complete their college courses, persist to the next academic term, and achieve their educational objectives.

The primary purpose of matriculation is to match student skills, needs and goals to the college's courses, programs and services. Students will be able to make better, more informed educational choices by using the services provided through matriculation. The eight components of matriculation are Admissions, Orientation, Assessment, Counseling/Advisement, Co-ordination/Training, Research, Pre-& Co-requisites, and Follow-up.

Prospective Students: Young man and women.  I want to make a difference.  I'm just getting started.

Matriculation is an agreement between the College and the student. Through this Matriculation agreement, the College agrees to provide the student with:

1. a timely admissions process
2. information about the campus and its satellite locations, the enrollment process, the matriculation process, and college policies and procedures
3. access to all matriculation processes
4. assessment services, including, but not limited to assessment of the student's basic educational skills and career goals
5. placement recommendations based on multiple measures
6. counseling/advisement in the selection of your classes
7. orientation on college programs, services and policies
8. information and referrals for student support services, such as financial aid, tutorial services, disabled student services and health services
9. follow-up activities that monitor the student's progress toward his/her educational goals
10. modified matriculation services as needed
11. legally established Pre- and Co-Requisites.

The student agrees to:

1. declare a specific educational goal at the time of admission
2. meet with a counselor to develop a student educational plan
3. meet with a counselor whenever there's a change in his/her existing student educational plan (SEP) and create a revised SEP
4. maintain reasonable progress toward his/her educational goals
5. attend class and complete assigned course work
6. complete courses and pursue his/her educational plans to reach his/her academic or career goals
7. complete assessment and orientation advising
8. seek out support services as needed.

If both the student and the college adhere to their commitments in this agreement, the student has a great chance of having a successful college career.
