Education Planning Tools
An education plan (aka “ed plan”) is a semester-by-semester course of study developed
in collaboration between a student and counselor. Comprehensive education plans (CEPs)
will map towards completion of long-term educational goals. It is suggested that a
student develop a CEP within completion of their first 15 units and maintain updated
ed plans throughout enrollment at Cuyamaca College.
Note: Education Plans are subject to change whenever there is a change of major, transfer
requirements, catalog rights, curriculum and policy changes, etc.
