IMPORTANT STATEWIDE CHANGE IN REGISTRATION PRIORITY EFFECTIVE FALL 2014  

 

Dear Pierce Student, 


The Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges has adopted a regulation that requires Pierce College and all other colleges to make significant changes in the assignment of registration priority dates effective for fall 2014 registration.  

Beginning with fall 2014 registration, students who have COMPLETED 100 or more degree applicable  units within the Los Angeles Community College District or who are on probation (due to a cumulative grade point average of less than 2.0 or completing less than 50% of attempted classes) will register after all other students have had the opportunity to do so.  This new regulation applies to ALL students, including those students who are enrolled in special programs such as EOPS, DSPS and Veterans.  

We realize that this is a big change in how registration priority is assigned and we encourage you to read the Frequently Asked Questions, as well as view the video from the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office which can be accessed at this link:

If you’re on Academic Probation you should attend one of our Probation Workshops (offered in-person or online) to develop a game plan to get back on track to meeting your academic goals. You can view a schedule of our in-person probation workshops as well as access the online probation workshop on our Counseling webpage: http://www.piercecollege.edu/offices/counseling_center/workshops.asp  

If you lose priority, an appeal process will be available if you feel you are on probation due to extreme extenuating circumstances.  All students who lose priority will be notified in February and will be informed of the appeals process.
