Preparing for Study Abroad

1. Basic Requirements for Applying to Cerritos College's Study Abroad Program:

  1. Overall GPA of 2.5 or above at time of application
  2. Completed minimum of 12 units at Cerritos College
  3. Completed English 100 with a grade of C or better or "Pass"
  4. Be at least 18 years old

2. Required to Study Abroad: A Passport

All students must have a passport from the U.S. in order to travel with a Cerritos College study abroad program. An international student who has a home country passport may require a visa for entry into the study abroad host country. If you do not have a U.S. passport, speak with the faculty in the Study Abroad Program right away.

See the U.S. State Department's Passport How-To page.

The Passport Photo Booth app can be downloaded to your phone; it's less expensive than getting formal pictures taken. Otherwise, less expensive passport photos can be taken at the local post office, CVS/Walgreens, AAA, and other locations.
