Early Alert Program (EAP)

The CalWORKs program has established an Early Alert Program (EAP) to guide students through their educational process. The goal is to help students obtain a better understanding of the requirements and resources that Cerritos College offers in order to obtain a Certificate of Achievement, Associate of Arts degree, or transfer to achieve a higher education.

As part of the CalWORKs and Early Alert Program (EAP), students are required to attend a New Student Success Orientation to maintain early enrollment where they will go over on/off campus resources and college/county requirements.
