Cerritos Falcon Card

Cerritos Falcon Card - Six Tips to Avoid the Fees


1. Don't throw away the card!

  • You will need it as long as you are here at Cerritos College. Replacement cards are $10. Visit the Financial Aid Office if you need to request a replacement card for a card that you never received. If you received the card and then it was lost/stolen, you can request the replacement card at www.cerritosfalconcard.com.

2. Use the HigherOne ATM located at Rodger's Sandwiches (10931 Alondra Blvd. Norwalk, CA 90650) for free withdrawals.

  • If the ATM is not in service or out of money, call HigherOne to request a waiver of any $2.50 non-HigherOne ATM fees.

3. Use the card as a credit for purchases. Swipe and sign.

  • Using the card as a debit will incur $0.50 transaction fees.

4. If you prefer to use your own account, switch your preference to ACH option (direct deposit).

  • Avoid the $25 Outgoing wire transfer fee for moving money from your HigherOne account to your other bank account.

5. Use the text alerts to notify you when your balance is low.

  • If you use the text alerts, you can avoid the insufficient funds which could cost $29 or more.

6. Use your account regularly.

  • If you do not use your account for 9 months, you will be charged a $19 abandoned account fee.
