What Students Are Saying

3.09 Average Rating
Most helpful and successful at helping you succeed in your studies! There are still a lot of programs and transfer courses to choose from with all these budget cuts! Classrooms are up to date with the latest technology.
Yessenia from Whittier, CA
I would give a B+ to Cerritos College because the professors are extremely helpful and they help students to succeed. The process of applying to financial aid is extremely easy and the people who work there are knowledgeable. However, it got a B+ instead of an A because finding parking is difficult for the first few weeks of school.
