What Students Are Saying

Be sure to take some PE classes because there are some great coaches at Cuesta that are very nice and incredibly knowledgeable!!! Also, if you can, take some time to explore San Luis Obispo County, places like Atascadero and Paso Robles both offer other fascinating experiences!!!

Come to cuesta and Enjoy the wonderufl school!!!!

The best way to ensure that your learning experience is enjoyable to to sign up for classes with professors that really love what they are doing. The single most important tool that I can recommend for new students to use is the website

Set up regular appointments with the councilors. Transfer time will catch up to you quickly and it is important to know all of your options and responsibilities. Also, use all the resources provided for you, they are there for a reason: to help you succeed.

I can only give you the tips for someone who might be in my situation. This was my third attempt at college, each time I did apply for financial aid. Because of my past failed attempts it made my financial aid process longer and tougher. My best advice is stay on top of your financial aid application, talk to the financial aid office often and start that early especially if your going to need the money soon for books and things. The other tip I would give is whatever class you are going to take, find out what all the fees are. For my particular class although I had financial aid support to pay for the classes, I was unaware of the fees for required things that had to be done to continue in the course. This is especially true for the Allied Health Dept.

Great place to figure out what you want to get a degree in.
Luis from Pismo Beach, CA
Make sure you put the appropriate amount of time into each class. Five credit classes are brutal, and take a lot of time, so I wouldn't recommend taking more than two of that type of class in a semester. Also never be afraid to e mail your teacher, or go visit them in their office hours. They are there to help, and are usually happy to do so.

Make sure to check out the campus first because it is about twenty minutes from San Luis Obispo. In other words you will need to have a means of transportation to and from the campus. That is unless you attend through their online courses. Also, make sure you get any forms, regstration, testing, financial aid things, and many other things done on time or you will see delays.
