Study Abroad

everyone can study abroad!

Study Abroad at Cerritos College is a great opportunity, no matter who you are or what stage of your academic journey are you in.  Participants receive GE college credits, learn important skills that increase applicants competitiveness for jobs and internships, and are immersed in a new experience, culture, and history.  Students who study abroad generally achieve higher GPA, degree completion, graduation rates, and internship opportunities. 

Cerritos College offers 2 types of experiences:

  • Faculty-led Programs - These for-credit experiences are offered during summer and offer 6 weeks of instruction (typically about 2 weeks at Cerritos/online and 3-4 weeks abroad).
  • Cultural Immersion Programs - these not-for-credit experiences, typically 3 weeks long, are designed to immerse you in a country's language and culture. 

All Cerritos programs are open to all, including current, new, and graduated students, as well as students attending another school over the age of 18. Cerritos Enrollment is required.

Additionally, there are creative ways to fund your study abroad experience, including scholarships, fundraising, and financial aid. Explore this page for more details and information.
