Pierce College



Pierce College is setting the pace in community college education, preparing students to take their place or to retrain in industries at the forefront of technological advances. The creation of the 15-week semester plan led to higher enrollment, better learning and better retention. With two five-week summer sessions and one five-week winter session, students are enjoying the opportunity to move more quickly through the curriculum with greater academic success.

Many Pierce College students transfer to the University of California system, the California State University system, and private universities to earn bachelor's degrees. Pierce College has one of the highest transfer performances in Southern California. Pierce Honors students have the enviable record of having never been turned down for admission to the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Pierce College students also transfer to California State University, Northridge (CSUN) in greater numbers than from any other college.
