Matriculation is defined by the Seymour-Campbell Student Success Act of 2012 as "a process that brings a college and a student into an agreement for the purpose of achieving the student's educational goals and completing the student's course of study."
Course of study is the student's chosen educational program; major or area of emphasis; or course sequence for transfer preparation, career preparation or advancement, completion of basic skills, or English as a second language proficiency to achieve the student's education goal. The agreement involves the responsibilities of the college and student, including includes services to optimize students' opportunities to foster academic success.
