- Compton Community College was established in 1927 as a component of the Compton Union High School District. In 1950, voters approved a bond issue separating the college from the high school district. The new college campus was then constructed at the present site. At its peak, student enrollment approached 10,000. After many successful years, and several very challenging years, a chain of events eventually led to Compton College's loss of accreditation and the ability to offer classes and grant degrees with units that will transfer to other colleges and universities. On July 24, 2006, the El Camino Community College District Board of Trustees gave approval for El Camino College to proceed with negotiations for an agreement to provide educational and related support services to residents of the Compton Community College District. In August 2006 the agreement was official, and El Camino College Compton Community Educational Center was established. The primary intent of the El Camino Community College District/Compton Community College District agreement is to assist with recovery and full accreditation. El Camino College provides accredited instructional and related support, in addition to administrative services, to meet the needs of Compton students. El Camino College courses are taught at Compton Center by Compton faculty. Administration at Compton Center is led by the Superintendent/ President of El Camino College. The Provost/CEO oversees daily operations at the Compton campus, along with a State appointed Special Trustee. Through the agreement, residents of the Compton community continue to have access to university transfer and vocational education opportunities, as well as financial aid, basic skills courses and related support services right in their own neighborhood. Welcome to Compton Center ? ?The Place to Be!? Some of the services offered at the El Camino College Compton Center include: assessment, academic counseling, peer advising, transfer assistance, career development, tutorial assistance, field trips, workshops, summer programs, and a book voucher to assist with the purchase of required books.
