Welcome To Matriculation
The Matriculation process is designed to assist students in achieving their educational goals at Saddleback College. The process begins when a new or returning student submits an application to the Admissions and Records Office. If a student is required to go through the Matriculation process, they cannot register for classes until the process is completed.
The Matriculation process begins when the student applies to Saddleback College. Students that have selected and Educational Goal that requires Matriculation will be guided through the three steps of the process. The Matriculation process consists of, the Online Orientation, Assessment testing, and Student Advisement.
Orientation can be completed at any time after you have applied to the college. Assessment testing appointments can be scheduled throughout the year by contacting the Matriculation Office. After the assessment testing has been completed, the student can then continue on with the one of three methods of completing their Student Advisement. The Advisement session help the student to determine their educational goals, plan a first semester schedule, and prepare a "Student Educational Plan".
The Matriculation follow-up service monitors student progress and informs and/or directs students who may be on academic or progress probation to appropriate services and programs for assistance.
