Student Rights and Responsibilities
All students have the right to challenge or appeal any step in the matriculation process.
Forms are available in the Admissions Office for this purpose. A student who feels that
his/ her right to matriculation services has been violated may file a grievance with the
Vice President of Student Services. Also, students who refuse matriculation services
will not receive priority registration.

and to declare a specific educational goal by the time 15 units are completed. The
student is also responsible for participating in counseling, attending class, completing
assignments, and maintaining progress toward an educational goal.
