About

Citrus College, located in Glendora, California, was founded in 1915 and is the oldest public community college in Los Angeles County. The school is a public two year institution offering technical and academic educations. The Citrus Community College district is comprised of the cities of Glendora, Charter Oak, Duarte, Azusa, Monrovia and Claremont, which together are the service area for Citrus College. Citrus College enrolls over 12,000 students a year and has one of the highest rates of transfer to four year institutions in the region. Citrus College is currently undergoing an expansion of its facilities as part of its continued goal of maintaining educational excellence for its students.

Academics

Citrus College offers degree and certificate programs in a large number of fields to fit the needs of its service community. Certificate programs are generally short term programs that provide training for specific, typically high demand, fields. Technical programs are also career oriented, but are also comprised of general education requirements that result in the awarding of an associate degree. Both technical and certificate programs prepare students for work after graduation, having developed the skills necessary to perform required tasks at the entry level. Academic programs generally fulfill the first two years of a four year education and allow for transfer to four year colleges or universities after graduation to pursue a bachelor's degree.
