3. Determine Your Starting Point

Pierce College is committed to providing the course sequences and support students need to succeed in college. High school or college transcripts and a placement assessment are the most common tools used to determine each student’s preparedness to succeed in college-level courses. The Testing Center is in the Puyallup Student Success Center, in the Gaspard Administration Building on the Puyallup Campus. Staff are available to help you determine the information/tools needed to determine your starting point.

All certificate and degree-seeking students must enroll in a College Success course in their first quarter.

4. Get Connected

Once you’ve completed the online Student Guide and any recommended assessment activity, you’ll be scheduled to review your draft education plan with a faculty advisor or student success coach. In this important private conversation focused on your interests, goals, and assessment results, you’ll determine your career pathway, discuss your starting point in sequenced courses, and map courses. This appointment is also an ideal opportunity to discuss any personal circumstances or support needs.
