Sierra College Promise

Since its first days, the promise of Sierra College has been to provide a challenging and supportive learning environment for students having diverse goals, abilities, and needs interested in transfer, career and technical training, and lifelong learning.

While Sierra College is focused on our immediate service area and its surrounding communities, we welcome all students, whether from other parts of California, other states, or from outside the US. Whether a student’s goal is to transfer to a four-year college or university, earn an associate’s degree or certificate, learn job skills, or engage in lifelong learning, Sierra College has a place for them.

In order to ensure Sierra College is meeting its promise, the college regularly reviews the progress of our students through assessing learning outcomes and monitors to ensure that students, regardless of background, are achieving their educational goals.
