Los Angeles Pierce College is a learning institution that offers excellent opportunities for student access and success in a diverse college community. The college dedicates all of its resources to ensure that students achieve their educational, career, and personal goals. Our comprehensive curriculum and support services enable students to earn associates degrees and certificates, prepare for transfer to a four-year university, gain career and technical education proficiency, develop basic skills and prepare for lifelong learning. We also serve our community through economic and workforce development.
With a population of over 20,000 students, Pierce offers an outstanding academic program with personalized attention to each student's needs at a much lower cost than a four-year institution. The college also has a fully staffed International Student Services (ISS) Office to meet the specific needs of students visiting on an F-1 Visa. Services include: admissions advisement, academic and personal counseling, F-1 status advisement, new student orientation, workshops, etc. Pierce currently has international students enrolled from over 35 countries around the world.
