What Students Are Saying

2.84 Average Rating
I love how organized the Pierce student online system is; it's user friendly, always updated, and provides students with whatever information is needed. Pierce College is extremely close to my house, and is in the middle of the valley- basically, anyone can go to it. The campus is beautiful, they have updated classrooms, maps of the campus are found everywhere... it's the place to be!
Patricia from Toluca Lake, CA
I am thrilled to be a student at Pierce, i am an honor student, the deans list, now the presidients list, I would not have been able to accomplish thus far without the outstanding faculty and guidance that Pierce has given me, I am forever grateful.
Gina from Chatsworth, CA
Pierce College deserves a rating of eight out of ten because the college itself does a fantastic job preparing their students for success. It encourages students of all ethnic backgrounds, regardless of their financial status to have the opportunity to learn. The academic background at the college is fairly decent and has a wide range of professors that do their job well.
