The Assessment Center provides assistance with the SRT, an online questionnaire which provides students with the opportunity to place into transfer-level English/ESL (English as a second language) or Math courses based on their U.S. high school records. There are two sections of the SRT: one for English/ESL and one for Math. Based on U.S. high school G.P.A. and other academic-related questions, students may be placed directly into transfer-level courses in the areas of English/ESL and Math.

This program provides opportunities for these students 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 a partnership between Cerritos College and our seven local school districts: ABC, Bellflower, Compton, Downey, Lynwood, Norwalk-La Mirada, and Paramount Unified School Districts

Cerritos Complete was officially established as the College’s California Promise Program in 2016 and has served over 6,800 student participants from the College’s local schools. Cerritos Complete provides local high school and adult school students with a scholarship that covers tuition free for two years. Since its inception, the College has seen a 30 percent increase in the number of degrees and certificates awarded.
