School continues to prepare for accreditation visit.
The self-evaluation for Cerritos College’s accreditation is still going strong. The teams from the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) are expected in March.

The school is confident in the steps they have taken to meet the standards set out by the ACCJC. While they are paying attention to the situation at Community College of San Francisco officials say that the situations between the schools are completely different.

Currently the school is in the process of editing the draft that will be presented to the board of trustees for approval. When it is complete it will be posted online for faculty, students, and anyone else to read through. Open forums will also be held to allow for input from the community.

Gary Pritchard begins new semester as Dean of Fine Arts and Communication

After serving as interim Dean of Fine Arts and Communication Gary Pritchard has been confirmed as the permanent dean.



The science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) program is holding a contest for students. Entrants will have to find ways to solve a pre-determined problem, with a Apple iPad going to the first place winner.

The contest was arranged by Chemistry professor Jeffery Bradbury and biology professor Michelle Navarro.

The last day to submit entries is August 30th.


Bookstore increase amount of textbooks available for rental.

The Cerritos College Bookstore has been working with textbook companies to increase the amount of textbooks available for students to rent.

The Cerritos bookstore was one of 15 bookstores chosen out of 950 campuses across the country.

Previously the bookstore offered around 20 to 25 percent of its books for rentals, and has increased to somewhere around 43 percent of the books in the store.

This is expected to be a big help for students since renting offers them a chance to acquire the textbooks they need at a discounted price. Sometimes up to 50 percent.
