I am a Sophomore attending Pierce College, looking to transfer to UCLA next semester. My experience here at Pierce has been amazing. I am a college student who suffers from financial distress. They provide a program called Extended Opportunities Program and Services (EOP&S for short) for low-income students, which has aided in so many great ways. I have registered in all of the classes I wanted, received help in purchasing books, and received great help from college counselors. The teachers at Pierce College are also great. Some are boring here and there, but most were interesting and made the classes enjoyable. I recommend attending Pierce College if you are looking to transfer to a UC or CSU!
Review Pierce College - Los Angeles
Pierce College is not only one of the highest ranking community colleges in the Los Angeles Community College District, but also has the highest transfer rates into 4 year universities in the district. Also, it is the largest campus in the LACCD, thanks to its Agricultural and Veterinary programs, and Nature reserve.

As far as academics are concerned, Pierce College has managed to hire some pretty prestigious professors, like Dr. John Prothero, who writes textbooks on Geography, and has been on a few science TV shows.

Over all, my experience at Pierce was very good. I had no trouble transferring. I would say that I came out a very well rounded Junior level Geography major. Saying that, Pierce College's Geography department is probably the largest and best in the LACCD as well. They actually have a GIS lab!
It's amazing! I'm planning to become an ASL teacher and being in the Deaf studies program at Pierce is outstanding. The ASL program at Pierce have plenty of internship and job opportunities offered throughout the whole school year. The faculty and staff in the ASL program are very caring and helpful and will do anything to help any ASL student majors to succeed. There are also Deaf events, which are required to go to so it can help you become a better signer.
