About Cerro Coso Community College
Established in 1973 as a separate college within the Kern Community College District (KCCD), Cerro Coso Community College is one of three colleges in the District which also includes Bakersfield College in Bakersfield and Porterville College in Porterville.

Cerro Coso Community College provides educational services to a population of about 85,000 distributed over a service area of over 18,500 square miles – the largest community college service area in California. Such a large area requires multiple physical sites in order to provide quality learning. Cerro Coso Community College has met this requirement by offering instruction and services to an approximate FTES of 2,850 students at six campus locations and through distance education.

The 320 acre IWV Campus at Ridgecrest, California is located in the upper Mojave Desert, 160 miles northeast of Los Angeles and 120 east of the District Office in Bakersfield, and serves a population of about 28,000. This campus serves about half of the student population of the college and houses most of the college administration. The Eastern Sierra College Center is north of the IWV campus and serves the communities of Inyo and Mono counties. The center operates two campuses, one in Bishop 120 miles north of Ridgecrest, and another in Mammoth Lakes which is an additional forty miles north. Forty-five miles west of the IWV campus, the Kern River Valley campus serves communities near Lake Isabella. The East Kern campus is seventy miles south of the IWV campus and is housed on Edwards Air Force Base. This center provides educational services to military and civilian personnel on the base and to the residents of nearby communities. The college’s most recent campus location, Tehachapi, was established in 2014 and received official status with ACCJC in 2016. Finally, the college serves inmates in two correctional facilities within its service area: California City Correctional Facility (CAC) and the California Correctional Institution (CCI) in Tehachapi.

In an effort to respond to the needs of individuals who cannot attend classes at one of the College’s six physical locations, the College established CC Online. This program has been fully reviewed by the regional accrediting agency. It currently provides 46 online degree and certificate programs and over 160 courses distributed over 350 sections each year with complete online support services, including matriculation, textbook purchasing, and library support.

Cerro Coso Community College is committed to improving processes to increase retention, persistence, course success, program completion and transfer while closing equity gaps.

The college has been focusing on improving student achievement and success for many years using models and initiatives such as Basic Skills Transformation, Student Success and Support Program (SSSP), Achieving the Dream, Strong Workforce Program, and California Promise. Guided Pathways offers a framework that integrates the best of these initiatives with a clear directive to improve the student experience through the lens of equity.
