Falcon Edge Orientation Workshop
Congratulations on choosing Cerritos College!
Placement-Orientation-Counseling is required for first-time, new-to-college students prior to enrollment.
**The placement process for English/English Second Language (ESL), and Math courses should be completed prior to your orientation**
The online orientation is a 90 minute session that is designed for first time college students. Orientation is REQUIRED for all new to college students. Although the online orientation can take up to 90 minute to complete please note that you can log off and back on after completing each section and the system will save your place in the orientation.
If you would like to continue with the online orientation please log on to MyCerritos and click on Falcon Edge Orientation Workshop.
Are you a continuing, returning or transfer student ?
If you are a continuing, returning or transfer student you are welcome to complete this orientation however you may need additional in person assistance by a counselor in order to answer your specific questions when planning your next semester.
If you have completed English, reading, and math courses or taken assessments at another college, please attend Virtual Drop-in to connect with a counselor. To get an assessment clearance you will need to complete the top half of the requisite clearance request form, attach a copy of your college or university transcripts (need not be official) or assessment results with course placement and submit the packet to the Admissions Office. The entire process can take up to 10 days.
If you have already completed your Falcon Edge Orientation in your MyCerritos account and have additional questions. Please sign up for one of our Falcon Edge Mini Orientations Workshops to connect with a counselor.
