Please refer to the
Student Success and Support Program (SSSP) section for SSSP exemption criteria information and procedures for challenging matriculation regulatory provisions.
- Orientation is offered in several formats in which some orientation sessions include a Student Educational Plan (SEP). Orientation can be satisfied by participating in the following sessions:
In-person orientation (recommended for new students; SEP included)
- New Student Assessment/Orientation Session
- Early Decision Day at Citrus College (only available through high school districts)
- New students who complete the orientation component in addition to the assessment test and student education plan, will earn an earlier registration date.
Meeting with a counselor/educational advisor is an important part of student success to help students achieve their course of study. The Student Educational Plan (SEP) lists courses that pertain to the identified course of study and is required for participation in many programs on campus. Check with the
Counseling and Advisement Center, or appropriate counseling office in which you are eligible to receive services, for available SEP services.
After completion of the
assessment and orientation, complete a SEP.
- If you have completed 15 or less college units, attend a Course Planning Session to create a one semester SEP.
- If you have 16 or more college units completed, make an appointment with a counselor to complete a SEP.
For the Course Planning Session schedule and to make an appointment, check out the
Counseling and Advisement Center online, call (626) 914-8530, or stop by the Counseling and Advisement Center (located on the second floor of the Student Services Building).
If you are eligible for specialty counseling services, inquire with the appropriate department for available SEP services. Failure to complete a SEP will result in a lower registration appointment.
