CCAP Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Do you have a question about the CCAP program?
Below you'll find a list of questions that we commonly receive. If you do not see your question referenced below, please contact the Dual Enrollment/CCAP Office via email.
Cuesta College Dual Enrollment students can take up to 11 units at Cuesta College per semester.

+Toggle d9e172 AccordionDoes participating in Dual Enrollment/CCAP make me ineligible for the Cuesta Promise once I graduate?
No; because the Cuesta Promise is for local students who have recently graduated from high school and are registering for classes for the first-time as a high school graduate. If you are participating in Dual Enrollment (including CCAP and Enrichment) your status will not impact your future Cuesta Promise student status.
You can find a list of age restricted classes HERE.
For Student; no. The only way to access the CCAP dynamic forms is by using your myCuesta portal login credentials.
For Parent/Guardian; yes. Since you will be required to grant permission for your student to participate in the program, you will be prompted to create a dynamic forms account to sign your portion of the permit. Instructions can be found HERE.
+Toggle d9e172 AccordionI have completed an admissions application to Cuesta College, but cannot retrieve my CCCApply account, can Cuesta help?
CCCApply is not maintained by Cuesta as this website is for all California Community Colleges, therefore we are only able to offer troubleshooting suggestions .
Through your student myCuesta e-mail (located in your myCuesta portal under ‘Gmail’).
We highly recommend you forward your Cuesta email to your personal email address, so you never miss a communication.
+Toggle d9e172 AccordionI am the parent of a High School student and I need to sign their CCAP Permit to Enroll; do I need a myCuesta account?
No. Since you will be required to grant permission for your student to participate in the program, you will be prompted to create a Dynamic Forms account to sign your portion of the permit. This is different from a myCuesta account. You can find the instructions HERE.
+Toggle d9e172 AccordionMy high school student put in the wrong parent email for me to sign electronically through Dynamic Forms, can I use a different email address?
Yes; please send us an EMAIL with your full name, the full name of your student, the high school they attend and the email you would prefer to use. Please complete this step prior to any dynamic form account creation.
DO NOT forward any communications from dynamic forms to your other/preferred email address. This will be flagged by dynamic forms as a forgery, and you will not be able to sign the CCAP Permit to Enroll. This will create a delay in enrollment and registration.
+Toggle d9e172 AccordionHow do I know (as the student) that I have completed all my enrollment steps and am registered for the course by Cuesta College?
Log into your myCuesta portal and click on the Student Self Service Icon.
On the Self-Service page, click on View Registration Information. Make sure you select the correct college Cuesta College term for your CCAP class; these terms do not always align with the high school semesters or trimesters.
+Toggle d9e172 AccordionI have completed all these steps for another CCAP course; do I need to do the steps all over again?
Once you have verified your CCAP registration in your myCuesta portal AND with your CCAP instructor, you will only need a CCAP Enrollment Form for the additional course you wish to participate in.
This is only applicable for CCAP courses within the same college term

Dual enrollment is an opportunity to take challenging courses and accelerate educational opportunities. Students who successfully complete dual enrollment courses receive many benefits. A serious consideration is that dual enrollment courses become part of students’ permanent college transcripts; if students receive a substandard grade, these grades will remain on their academic transcript and could affect eligibility for financial aid and admission to other postsecondary institutions in the future.
Yes, however, there may be additional documentation that will be required to waive non-resident fees;
Education Code section 68085 also permits the California Community colleges, and other California public postsecondary segments, to classify a foster youth student as a resident for tuition purposes until he or she has resided in the state for the minimum time needed to become a resident, if the student meets the following requirements:
1) Currently resides in California
2) Is 19 years of age or younger
3) Is currently a dependent or ward of the state through California’s child welfare system, or was served by this system and is no longer being served either due to emancipation or aging out of the system.
As it relates to determining student eligibility for the foster youth residency exception, and as required for numerous other residency exceptions, districts will need to rely on actual evidence and not a self-certification that the student is or was a dependent or ward of the state through California's child welfare system (e.g., standardized documentation currently given to foster youth by county welfare departments as evidence of this transition for financial aid or other purposes, including “Ward of the Court” letters or “Proof of Dependency” cards). Please note that the form of documentation may vary county, but should include certain essential information, such as “Youth Name,” “Date of Birth,” “Current Mailing Address and ILP Contact Number,” “County Identification Number” or “Probation Identification Number,” and “Dependency/Wardship Start Date.”
The form of documentation provided to emancipating youth by each county is optional. However, a laminated, wallet-sized card is the State Department of Social Services recommended form of dependency verification.
For students who have not emancipated or aged out of care, similar foster care verification can also be obtained from the county welfare departments by the applying student.

+Toggle d9e172 AccordionI'm still in high school but am 18 years old. Do I still need a parent signature on my CCAP Enrollment Forms?
Under CCAP partnership agreement, regardless of the age of the student, our CCAP Permit to Enroll requires consent signatures. This consent signature is provided by both the student and the students parent/legal guardian.
