 Welcome to the Student Success & Support Program (Matriculation)


Matriculation is the process that brings the college and the student into a partnership for the purpose of developing and realizing the student's educational objectives. The goal of matriculation at LACC is to ensure that all students complete their courses, persist to the next academic term and achieve their educational objectives through our assistance; from the moment they first apply until they are finished at Los Angeles City College.
