Founded in 1915, Citrus College is in Glendora in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, approximately 25 miles northeast of metropolitan Los Angeles. The 104-acre campus has the distinction of being the oldest community college in Los Angeles County and the fifth oldest in the state.

Citrus College was founded in 1915 under the leadership of Dr. Floyd S. Hayden, who helped bring the community college movement to California. From 1915 to 1961, the college was operated by the Citrus Union High School District. In July 1961, the Citrus Community College District was created.

The college is undergoing major facilities expansion that will change the look of the campus.

The college enrolled 27 students in 1915 and now serves more than 11,000 students.

Classes are offered on a 16-week calendar (fall and spring semesters), as well as in a variety of non-traditional scheduling options: six-week winter intersession, evenings, late start and early end, summer sessions and optional class formats, such as distance education online courses and distance education integrated classes.
