The Office of International Student Services (OISS) fosters the education and development of International Students with F-1 status, to empower them to achieve their academic and professional goals. The OISS provides assistance with admission, academic counseling, advising, cross-cultural adjustment, and compliance requirements. 

Cerritos College is a Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) certified and approved institution to enroll non-immigrant students. 

Dear International Students, 

Many of you have seen the recent guidance from SEVP’s recently released Memo Dated 07/06/2020, or you may have heard it on the news or read it online. 

The Office of International Student Services also received the guidance by email and we will review this information to determine the options for our students. 

We do not have the answers now, but we are looking to find solutions, working closely with our Administration. 

Please do feel free to reach out to us with your concerns. 

We ask that you please be patient and know that we will be sending an email to our students once we have more information.
