Hello, i am trying to make an appointment right now for “group counseling”, but even with the options appearing available, it will not let me make an appointment. It says “The classroom is full”.
Adrian Arzola
03:01:43
does anyone know how to join the group counseling
Alex Kohanchi
03:02:07
you have to make an appointment when its open, usually early in the morning
kimberly
03:03:14
Lets just say you were to finish the 60 units earlier than the full 2 years, can you transfer earlier and will it be a problem with the promise program
Sergio Gonzalez Pierce College
03:05:32
@Kimberly - If you were to have taken units during high school and complete the needed units to transfer in 1 year, then Promise would cover you for the 1 year
Sergio Gonzalez Pierce College
03:05:47
You can send Promise questions to Outreach@piercecollege.edu
kimberly
03:06:07
Okay thank you
Transfer Center (Ruta)
03:06:09

The classroom limit for New Student Counseling Groups is 10. It will appear full once the limit has been reached. Unfortunately, it still allows you to enter your information and then you get the messaging about it being full after you complete the form. We have contacted ConexEd about this and asked that they fix this since it is confusing for students. You have the option to schedule group counseling or a 60 minute appointment with reason code " Educational planning for your 1st and/or 2nd semesters of courses" .
Vicki Sarkisyan
03:17:21

As mentioned earlier, all students will be evaluated their satisfactory academic progress at the end of each term. So it is very important to maintain good grades. Please review the the progress requirements from our website.
Jadon Cochran

I do have a question. I'm a music major and was planning on transferring to a music school in California (of the UC or CSU schools) in the fall of 2021 (next year) and take general education classes for only the following year. Based off of this discussion, it seems that I may need to in fact be enrolled in Pierce College for two years. Is that correct?
Anafe Robinson - Financial Aid
04:02:16
Yes, normally it takes about two years to complete your AA or transfer program.
Anafe Robinson - Financial Aid
04:02:42
I suggest that you contact an meet with your academic counselor to make sure you are on track with your courses required to transfer.
