1. Apply for Admission - It's Free!

Before you can register for classes, you must fill out an application to the college.  This can be done online and it is free! Check the Admissions and Records web pages to find out additional information about being admitted to Cuyamaca College.

2. Send Your Transcripts

If you have previous college credit, or "nontraditional" credit, (i.e. Advanced Placement, CLEP, or military service),  have your official transcripts or documents sent to:

Admissions and Records

Cuyamaca College
900 Rancho San Diego Parkway
El Cajon, CA 92019-4369

An official transcript is one that has been sent directly to the office of Admissions and Records from the issuing institution. Transcripts submitted previously by applicants who never enrolled are kept on file for two years.  Unofficial transcripts can be used for advising purposes only.

3. Orientation, Assessment and Academic Advising

After you have applied for admission, you need to attend an Orientation and Assessment session.  The results of your assessment test will help you in selecting the best English and math classes to take your first semester and beyond.  Additional information regarding assessment exemptions is available at the above referenced link.
