Cerritos Complete – More than a Promise

Cerritos Complete, a California College Promise program, is our student success initiative that focuses on our students’ pledge to earn and complete their degrees or certificates on time. Cerritos Complete is a partnership between Cerritos College and our five local school districts: ABC, Bellflower, Downey, Norwalk-La Mirada, and Paramount Unified School Districts.

The Cerritos Complete program is a great opportunity for high school seniors to smoothly transition to college. This program provides opportunities for high school seniors to obtain the skills and knowledge needed for college, explore a variety of careers, save money on their college education, and graduate from college on-time. Cerritos Complete is available to graduating high school seniors from our local school districts who complete the steps in high school.
