About Matriculation

Matriculation is a state-mandated program that enhances access to the California Community Colleges and promotes and sustains the efforts of 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.

Since 1987, Matriculation at SRJC has provided students with easy access to the college's programs and services. There are seven basic components. Five of these are services provided directly to students and intended to provide equitable possibilities of student success.

Admissions - Assessment - Orientation - Counseling - Instruction - Follow-up - Research

Before registering for classes, you receive a thorough orientation to the college's programs, services and facilities.

You also receive a fair and accurate assessment of your current skill levels, abilities and interests.

A comprehensive counseling and advising program then assists you in establishing your educational goals and identifies support services to achieve your goal.

Matriculation also helps ensure our college offers the curriculum and instructional programs to meet the needs of our students through course offerings such as study skills, overcoming math enxiety, career development, college survival, understanding the transfer process, etc.

Finally, there is an aggressive follow-up program to monitor your progress toward your educational goals and provide early intervention if you encounter difficulties.
