Fall 2023 Update

Welcome to Fall 2023! 

I hope you had a wonderful summer!  The Fall semester at Cerritos College begins on Monday, August 14th!  However, classes do not begin until Tuesday, August 15th. On Monday the campus will be holding Welcome Day from 8:30am-2:00pm and we hope you join in!  You can drop by our booth in the quad or stop by the SAS office afterward from 2:30-6:00pm if you have quick questions or need help getting your accommodation letters sent to your professors. SAS is here to help you navigate the start of the Fall 2023 semester, so keep reading for more info!

INSTRUCTOR ACCOMMODATION LETTERS: Request them through the SAS Student Portal if you haven’t done so already.  For instructions on sending your accommodation letters:

Please see the High Tech Center webpage for further details on available TECHNOLOGY ASSISTANCE.

APPOINTMENTS:  Students may schedule their in-person, Zoom, and phone appointments directly in the SAS Student portal.  Students can request accommodations, schedule exams, and schedule appointments with a counselor, specialist, or for assistive technology training all in one place! Navigate to the SAS Student Portal then click on Schedule an Appointment to get started!  

EXAM ACCOMMODATIONS:  The SAS Testing Center recently started a new procedure for students to schedule and upload exams via the SAS Portal! Visit the SAS Testing Center website to access the student instructional guide, video, and portal. Please contact the Testing Center at if you have questions.

On behalf of the entire SAS team, we look forward to continuing our work with you and hope that you feel empowered to self-advocate as you continue on your educational journey here at Cerritos College.
