Step 1 - Apply Online

Before you can register for classes, you must fill out an application to the college. This can be done online and it is free. Apply now!

You will receive an email within minutes of submitting your application. The email will include next steps and confirmation of submission. If you do not receive a confirmation email, be sure to check all spam filters first before contacting Admissions and Records. Applications take between 24-48 hours to process. We do not send an additional email at that time, so please be sure to log into your WebAdvisor account to confirm that your application was received.

The following items can be done while your application is being processed.

  • If you have attended another college, have your official transcripts or documents sent to the Transcripts office at Cuyamaca College to clear prerequisites, and to award prior credit for degrees and certificates. Official transcripts and scores must still be in the sealed official envelope if you are submitting them in person.
  • If you took AP classes in high school, please have College Board send your test scores to the Transcripts office.
Step 2 - Priority Registration (optional)

If you are pursuing a degree, certificate, or planning to transfer, please complete these steps as soon as possible, but they are not required before registration. Completion of these steps will earn you an earlier registration date and time.
