Cerritos College Passport Block

The Passport Block listed here is for general information only. Students must see the institution's website http://www.cerritos.edu for access to the official block.

 The Cerritos College Passport aligns with the approved California State University (CSU) agreement on General Education requirements for transfer. The CSU transfer agreement is offered at all California Community Colleges. Cerritos College feels the CSU agreement is comprehensive in its inclusion of most transfer students in our system and robust in satisfying the demands of the Interstate Passport Network.
