Student Success and Support Program

The Seymour-Campbell Student Success Act of 2012 requires California Community Colleges to provide students with the following core matriculation services to assist them in achieving their educational goals in their program of study.

  • Orientation;
  • Placement Process (AB 705 or Guided Self-placement)
  • Counseling and other educational planning services;
  • Referrals to specialized support services; and
  • Evaluation of the student’s academic progress for intervention.

It is the student’s responsibility to participate in these activities by:

  • Identifying an education and/or career goal;
  • Participating in orientation;
  • Completing the Placement Process for English and mathematics recommendations
  • Participating in counseling services and completing an abbreviated student education plan on entry; and
  • Completing a comprehensive student education plan upon completion of fifteen (15) units or within two (2) semesters.

Students who do not complete the above activities may be considered a non-matriculated student and will not receive priority registration when registering for courses.

Matriculation Exemption

A student may qualify for exemption from placement based on the following criteria:

  • Completion of an associate degree or higher from a regionally accredited college;
  • Enrollment in coursework to pursue personal enrichment or maintain a certificate/license;
  • Students with “Special Admit Status” (students concurrently enrolled in high school and college)
  • All students are required to participate in orientation and counseling services including the development of a student educational plan.
