About Cuyamaca College

Welcome to Cuyamaca College

Since 1978, Cuyamaca College has provided a solid education to students, whether they’re beginning their university degree at Cuyamaca, returning to school to launch a career or to acquire new skills or enrolling in an innovative occupational program. With its vision of “Learning for the Future,” Cuyamaca College offers a wide scope of challenging courses, from drafting technology and child development to paralegal training, campus sceneryfrom computer and information science or ornamental horticulture to automotive technology. With 49 degree programs and 46 certificates offered at Cuyamaca College, learning opportunities abound under the tutelage of highly-qualified, dynamic instructors imbued with a love of teaching. 

We take pride in our comprehensive student support services and the careful guidance students are provided as they navigate the unknown avenues of academia. With a one-stop student services facility right at the college entrance, students are assured convenient, on-the-spot assistance from attentive staff for a variety of services: admissions, financial aid, counseling, university transfer, job placement, and much more. 

It’s a small wonder that enrollment at Cuyamaca College continues its rapid ascent, boasting its highest-ever population of over 9,000 students. Recently identified by Community College Week as the 16th fastest-growing middle-sized community college in the nation, Cuyamaca is well on its way to a projected enrollment of 15,000 students by the year 2015. 

With the passage in Fall ’02 of Proposition R, a facilities bond measure approved by East County voters, Cuyamaca is undergoing major capital improvements. Over the next ten years, students will benefit from much-needed new facilities as well as scheduled renovations, repairs and upgrading.  

What an exciting time it is to be a part of the campus community!  It is with utmost enthusiasm that I say, “Welcome to Cuyamaca College."
