- Pay the $50 application fee by credit card via the student portal.
- Bring in the following documents to International Student Services (Office 48271):
- I-20 (pages 1 and 2)
- Valid passport - expired passports will not be accepted
- F-1 Visa
- Official permission letter from your current school DSO verifying you are "in-status" and have permission to enroll within LACCD. You will need to submit a new letter for every semester you concurrently enroll at Pierce.
Allow up to three (3) business days for your application to be processed once all documents are received.
If you are taking a class that requires prerequisite clearance (e.g.: English, Math, Chemistry, etc.), you may need to meet with a counselor or assessment advisor to have the prerequisite cleared.
