New Students who are required to complete AOC will have two holds on their MyCerritos account: one for Assessment (ASM) and the other for Orientation-Counseling (ORI).
- To remove the 'ASM' hold, new students must complete assessments/placement, (Math, English and Reading) or ESL testing.
- To remove the 'ORI' hold, new students must complete an in-person orientation or online orientation via 'MyCerritos'
Please be prepared:
Obtaining classes and receiving some services are more difficult this year due to state funding that was cut at all UC, CSU, and community collegecampuses.
Class offerings may be very limited. Please plan your class schedule carefully because demand may be high.
