    This community college is cheap making an education more affordable. Later on you can transfer to a 4 year university saving money as you did the first 2 years in a community college.

    El Camino College Compton Center is a great place for students who did not reach their goals right out of high school. We have many people here who want to help their students succeed. We are also obtaining many of the utilities that bigger colleges have acces to. We now have touch screen computers and a new huge library for your research. The professors are very helpful with any topic whether academic or personal.
