Sierra College Catalog
The Sierra College Catalog provides important information on the courses offered at our college, transfer and graduation information, and campus policies.
For complete information including current dates and course listings, please use the Catalog in conjunction with the current Class Schedule.
Sierra College issues a new catalog every academic year. New programs may be introduced and course requirements for specific majors may change from one catalog to the next. For purposes of meeting Sierra College degree and/or certificate requirements, students may choose from the following Sierra College catalog options:
The catalog in effect at the time the student first enrolled at Sierra College or any year thereafter, as long as continuous enrollment has been maintained;
The catalog in effect at the intended semester/session of graduation; or
The catalog in effect at the time the student first enrolled at a California community college, a California State University, a University of California campus, and/or a regionally accredited institution of higher education, as long as continuous enrollment has been maintained.
Continuous enrollment is defined as enrollment in at least one course per calendar year (spring, summer, fall), with at least one of the following academic record symbols recorded on an official transcript: A, B, C, D, F, W, MW, P, NP, or I. Students beginning enrollment during the summer have the option of choosing the prior academic year’s catalog.
If continuous enrollment is interrupted, students may reestablish catalog rights based on the date of re-enrollment at Sierra College or any other California community college, CSU, UC campus, or regionally accredited institution of higher education.
Regardless of catalog rights, a course may be used to satisfy a general education requirement if it was approved for the general education area at the time the course was successfully completed and the course complies with Title 5 regulations.
Catalog rights do not apply to entrance requirements for programs (e.g., Nursing).
