What is Online Education?
Online education provides an alternative to the traditional classroom-based format, however, it does place more responsibility on the student to be self-disciplined and to apply solid independent study skills. Online courses offered through Cuesta College are equivalent to the classroom-based version in course content, textbooks, required assignments, exams, study time, etc.
Do I need to register to take online education courses?
Yes. Registration for an online education course is no different than a regular classroom course.
- Get Started with admissions and records
- Courses are held during regular dates of instruction
- Use the class finder to locate online courses
- Before registering review the Course Welcome Letter
- If the class is closed (full) you could be waitlisted
- Review the fee schedule for the cost to attend and other important information
