Frequently Asked Questions
To find out which classes you need to meet your academic goals and how long it will take to graduate or transfer to a UC or CSU.
Your program prefers to help you develop your educational plan. Please connect with your program to make an educational plan counseling appointment.
If you submit an online CSEP request, we will refer you to your program counselor.
You may submit 1 online CSEP request per semester.
Once your online CSEP is complete, we will email you at your PCC email. Then you can check your educational plan in LancerPlan (in LancerPoint).
If you have limited academic history, the counselor may want you to get acquainted with the unit load before planning a full comprehensive ed plan.
If you are currently on probation, the counselor may want you to improve your GPA first and then reassess after, before increasing your units load.
If you prefer a part-time student status, your CSEP will be much longer and it may not be accurate as requirements change over time or you may wish to take more classes later. For this reason, it is best to plan for 1 year and then reassess at that time.
If you do not meet the criteria to receive an online CSEP, your request will be too difficult to complete without your input in a conversation setting. In these situations, our online counselor may offer you a counseling appointment referral so you may speak with a counselor about your educational plan in detail.
We will always notify you about the status of your request and give you options to get assistance.
You do not need another CSEP unless it is required (example: needed for financial aid SAP appeal). If you could not enroll in your planned classes, you may select classes from another term on your CSEP. As long as you qualify for the class and meet the prerequisite (s), you may move the classes around in your CSEP.
