Fremont College is located in the California community of Cerritos, but the school traces its origins back all the way to 1879 with the founding of Platt College in Missouri. Platt opened a campus in Cerrito in 1986, and it eventually became completely independent as Fremont College in 1989. The present name was given following the school’s acquisition by Fremont Private Investments, Inc. in 2006, at which point the school underwent significant expansion as well as relocation to its current state-of-the-art facility.


Following its 2006 expansion, the school now offers a larger number of associate degrees and career education programs. Morning, afternoon, and evening classes are available and students can earn a bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Management or in Business Leadership. Associate degrees are offered in Multimedia Design, Healthcare Information Technology, Sports and Rehabilitation Therapy, and Paralegal Studies.

In addition, the campus provides its students with opportunities to hear CEO’s, business leaders, authors, athletes, and other guest speakers give talks on how they succeeded and their journeys in their respective industries. These are designed to encourage and motivate current students to do well in their studies.

Most Popular Fields of Study


Students looking to apply for admission must meet a series of minimal requirements. At the start of the application procedure is an in-person or over-the-phone interview with a school admissions representative who will help the applicant identify a specific study program to suit their needs and qualifications. Separately, applicants must submit their high school diploma or a GED.

Students are encouraged to submit (optional) letters of recommendation and entrance essays as part of the admissions procedure. Mandatory materials include a filled out Admissions Application and Enrollment Agreement, as well as a passing grade in the Career Programs Assessment Test and (only for paralegal program applicants) a passing grade in the corresponding paralegal test. A final acceptance interview is conducted at the end of the admissions procedure.

Financial Aid

The variety of financial aid options available to students is fairly typical of most colleges of the same level, and the most common types of awards come in the form of Pell Grants, PLUS Loans, Academic Competitiveness Grants, private loans, and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants. Students are encouraged to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Secrets to getting the best scholarships and financial aid in California.


The student body is quite diverse (in keeping with California’s generally rich mixture) and the vast majority of students are California residents and are enrolled in the school on a full-time basis. This is an exclusively commuter campus, and therefore students must find their own housing arrangements in the surrounding community (or farther afield for those enrolled in an online program).

The school does foster various student activities to give students the kind of engagement they need in the course of their studies, such as Career Seminars as well as a variety of trips and tours or local and state businesses or institutes. The school is noted for having a very proactive and dynamic student services program, which uses so-called “Student Ambassadors” and internship opportunities to keep students fully engaged right through the end of their program.

The student body itself is remarkably small, with little over 100 fully enrolled students in a given term, three-quarters or more of whom are usually female.
