Comprehensive Student Education Plan (CSEP)

Effective Summer and Fall 2018 priority registration, all continuing Cuesta students must complete a Comprehensive Student Education Plan (CSEP) prior to reaching 15 credits completed at Cuesta to maintain priority to register.  A Comprehensive SEP is a roadmap to completion of your educational goal.  The SEP is a sequential plan per term that charts when to take the courses you need for your program/major and transfer plans, with guidance from a Cuesta counselor.   

How to obtain a Comprehensive SEP?
SEPs can only be completed during a scheduled counseling appointment.  Contact Cuesta Counseling Services to schedule an appointment.  Prior to your appointment, transcripts from all colleges and universities you have previously attended must be submitted to the Records Office.

Changes to Priority Enrollment Policy

  • Pre-RN priority has been discontinued.  Pre-RN students will receive priority based on number of credits completed at Cuesta, who have completed a CSEP prior to reaching 15 credits completed at Cuesta.
  • ¡Zoom! Program students receive early priority as a Special Program in Priority 2.  New students must complete matriculation activities, which are assessment/placement, orientation, and an Abbreviated Student Education Plan (ASEP) followed up with a CSEP before reaching 15 credits completed at Cuesta.
  • Cougar Welcome Day is a new priority for new, transfer, or returning (sat out a term) students who attend this Student Services & Academic Programs Resource Fair.  Reservations are required.
