    Matriculation is a process that enhances student 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 through the assistance of the student-direct components of the matriculation process: admissions, orientation, assessment and testing, counseling, and student follow-up.

    The Matriculation Unit provides coordination and leadership to the community colleges with respect to credit and noncredit matriculation programs and services. Staff also provide technical assistance in the areas of prerequisites, assessment, and matriculation plan review, in addition to administering the matriculation budget: allocations, recycling funds, and special project grants and contracts.
