What Students Are Saying

3.09 Average Rating
For all the students who are planning to attend Cerritos I highly recommend that you register as soon as possible. When it comes to enrollment choose your classes wisely and pick the classes you want to take ahead of time so that when it comes time to enroll it can be done fast and easy.

when you come to Cerritos get connected. Find and surround yourself with students who want to learn. Utilize your teacher to your advantage. Make sure you take the techniques you're taught and reserve them. Here at Cerritos College, the professors and campus staff do what is needed to get you through each semester. So don't be afraid to ask for help. last but not least get tutoring if needed

My tips for any students who are thinking about taking the CC route, is I would say go for it! You will save a ton of cash, plus if you apply yourselves you can easily have a great experience. Join clubs, take part in the ball and float design, etc. GET INVOLVED. I know everyone stresses that, but at a commuting college, if you want the college experience you really do have to try your best to get involved. Join the student government body, do something. If you do this, you will really enjoy your time at Cerritos College.

Talk to your Professors and email them if you have questions. Even if yo think it is a dumb question email if you are to embarrassed to ask in class, the dumb question is the one not asked.

A student should have a plan of action in order to proceed further into their education.

APPLY YOURSELF. Community College isn't the place to slack off, take the most units you can so you can be done quicker with the transfer process. This campus is a great place for this, and the professors I've had here are so helpful. Their is not a bad thing i have to say about this place, as you will love it yourself, just do not slack off.
Edgar from Lynwood, CA
Be willing to stay home on friday nights and saturday afternoons to get your work done . Be fully commited to what you want to do with your life .
Taloni from Los Angeles, CA
I would come check out the campus to see if it is right for you. Its cheap, great for the LA area, and the professors are nice and are always there for you.
Gloria from Maywood, CA
Be ready for school because its not like high school where you think you can slack off andpass just like that. Take college seriously; it determines your future and use your financial aid wisely. make sure you apply to classes that you know that you need.
Chinyere from Bellflower, CA
ASK ASK ASK questions to clear the air of all these rumors you hear from your peers! Staff at a cerritos college are friendly and nice, don't be shy to ask for help around the school as a freshmen. Make friends with older students to get most of the 411 on campus and to get the DO's and Don'ts! Regularly see a counselor to make sure you're on track with your educational plan!
