Dear Compton College Students,
Welcome to the 2018-19 year. Below are some important updates. I will send a quarterly "Tartar Message" to you, so please continue to check your college email.
Compton College Transition
As Compton College completes the process to become an accredited college under the
governing authority of the Compton Community College District (CCCD) by summer 2019,
please be assured that multiple measures are underway to ensure a smooth transition.
We anticipate a seamless continuation of all academic and support programs provided
to our students as Compton College becomes a fully independent college, separate from
the El Camino Community College District.
As part of the process, we will ask all current Compton College students to submit a release form allowing El Camino College to transfer educational, student and financial aid records to the Admissions and Records Office at Compton College. As of June 7, 2019 at 11:59 p.m., courses for the 2019-2020 school year will be offered under the authority of the CCCD, and all students earning degrees or certificates at Compton College will be issued a Compton College diploma awarded by the Compton Community College District.
Please check your email regularly for upcoming information regarding the transfer/release of student records.
Compton College Accreditation
On June 7, 2017, Compton College received initial accreditation from the Accrediting
Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC). Then on July 17, 2017, the Board
of Governors for the California Community Colleges approved Resolution No. 2017-2
recognizing Compton College as the 114th California Community College.
Compton College is currently a college under the authority of the El Camino Community College District. The process has begun for the college to operate under the authority of the Compton Community College District Board of Trustees.
For more information about the Compton College transition process go to www.compton.edu/compton114 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you haven't registered for your fall 2018 classes, please register now; we anticipate
courses filling up fast. View the class schedule.
