Welcome to the Cerritos College online orientation system! The online orientation is a two hour session that is design for first time college students. Orientation is REQUIRED for all new to college students. Although the online orientation can take up to TWO hours to complete please note that you can log off and back on after completing each section and the system will save your place in the orientation.
If you are a continuing, returning or transfer student you are welcome to complete this orientation however you may need additional assistance by a counselor in person to answer your specific questions when planning your next semester.
In order to complete the online orientation you need to have an up-to-date application to the college and to have completed at least one Assessment, English, reading math and ESL. This assessment is required before you will be allowed to continue with the online orientation.
You can go to the Career Services website and click on Assessment-Testing for the calendar and for sample assessments. Please take the time to review the sample assessments. Your placement based on the assessment will determine how many English, reading and math courses you need to complete to reach the level required for your educational goal.
You may obtain an assessment clearance if you have completed English, reading, and math courses or the assessments at another college. To get an assessment clearance you will need to complete the top half of the requisite clearance request form, attach a copy of your college or university transcripts (need not be official) or assessment results with course placement and submit the packet to the Admissions Office. The entire process can take up to 10 days.
