The Financial Aid Office at Cerritos College offers both community-based outreach and campus-based outreach opportunities.

Community-based outreach

Our experienced financial aid representatives provide effective support to help make the financial aid process easy and comprehensible for students and their families. We make every effort to educate the community by developing collaborative relationships with Cerritos College staff and faculty, K-12 schools and public service programs. If you are a representative from a local high school, adult school or other community-based organization that would like to request a presentation from our office, please visit our School Relations page and submit an Outreach Request.
