Cerro Coso Moves to New Location in Lake Isabella
Cerro Coso Community College in Lake Isabella has completed its move to their new facility located at 6504 Lake Isabella Blvd., (across from the Post Office) in Lake Isabella.
The college announced on Tuesday, September 28, 2020 its intent to restructure services to area residents.
The new location offers a more modern look in a smaller space for Cerro Coso to provide educational assistance for its robust distance education programs.
Dr. Corey Marvin Vice President of Instruction said, “we want to provide our students with as stable as possible education during these times of uncertainty. Restructuring our services was a necessity to preserve college opportunities for future generations of valley residents and Cerro Coso students.”
Thanks to technology supported by the new location, getting an education will be easier than ever. Cerro Coso has been a pioneer in distance education since 1997, the first community college in the state to offer an entire degree online, and offers the ability for students to take classes in a variety of modalities including scheduled Zoom, hybrids, and fully online courses. This gave the college an advantage when all colleges were forced to move their classes to remote delivery during the spring 2020 semester due to COVID-19. Last fall, over 120 KRV students took distance education classes with Cerro Coso. These students averaged over 2 classes each, noted Marvin, as they make progress toward their educational goals.
The college has also implemented a number of strategies to assist students with laptop loans and remote delivery services for counseling, tutoring, financial aid, library, Access Programs, student engagement, and more.
Registration for spring 2021 classes that begin January 18, 2021 is currently underway. In addition to a new location the college has a new telephone number. Give them a call today at (760) 384-6395.
New Year. New location. Endless possibilities.
