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:
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 reenrollment 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).
