The Success Center does not provide services for students who are not currently enrolled in academic courses at Cerritos College.

All students are required to abide by Cerritos College Student Standards of Conduct and use the Success Center in an ethical and lawful manner. Link to the Standards of conduct:

When the conduct of a student transcends the bounds of law, policy, or regulation, and interferes with the normal processes of education, the student will be removed from the Success Center, and the college will take appropriate disciplinary action through Judicial Affairs.
