Student Success and Support Program
Senate Bill 1456 revised and renamed the Matriculation Act of 1986 as the Seymour-Campbell Student Success Act of 2012. Signed by Governor Brown on September 27, 2012, the program began on January 1, 2013 and will be implemented through stages over a five-year period. The Student Success and Support Program supports the transition of new students into the college by providing services that promote academic achievement and successful completion of degrees, transfer preparation, career technical education certificates, or career advancement.
Effective Fall 2014, based on student responses to the East Los Angeles College application for admission, students will be identified as matriculating or non-matriculating. Students identified as matriculating are referred to core matriculation services: assessment placement, orientation, and counseling. Students must complete the assessment placement, orientation, and counseling (Abbreviated Student Educational Plan) prior to their priority registration date and time. Abbreviated Student Educational Plans (SEPs) are provided during the counselor led new student in-person orientations. After registration and sometime during the semester, a Comprehensive Student Educational Plan must be completed within a reasonable time period by making an appointment to meet with a counselor. Non-matriculating students are exempt from participating in the core matriculation services, but are advised to access these services if they plan to pursue a degree or certificate.
