  3. Course-level proposals must follow the process outlined in the LACCD Administrative Regulation E-65​.
  4. Program-level proposals must be submitted according to the procedures outlined in the LACCD Administrative Regulation E-64 and summarized on the Pierce Curriculum Process page of this site.

  6. Program-level technical review will take place on a continuous basis during fall and spring semesters, excluding summer and winter intersessions, via a means of communication acceptable to the technical review members such as email, conference call, or in-person meetings. 
  7. Every effort is made to complete the technical review within 14 calendar days from the date the curriculum proposal reaches the Technical Review stop (stop 4) in ECD. 
  8. To be placed on the curriculum agenda, all technical review issues must be resolved no less than 7 calendar days prior to a curriculum meeting.  If technical issues remain unresolved with less than 7 calendar days remaining until the next meeting, the request will be delayed until such time that all technical issues are resolved within 7 days prior to the meeting.
  9. The initiator of course and program proposals must be present at the curriculum meeting to discuss their requests unless the Curriculum Chair has contacted them and told them they do not need to attend.  The only exception to this is course archive requests. 

Pierce College and its departments have made very effort to maintain accurate web pages and may change general information, courses, or programs offered. Changes may be made for the following reasons: student enrollment, level of funding, or other issues as determined by the College or the Los Angeles Community College District. Consult the current ​Pierce College General Catalog​ for program and course information.
