Cuesta College Cougars,

Cuesta College has been in communication with the San Luis Obispo Public Health Department, regarding the Stay at Home order that went into effect this past weekend.  Based on the restrictions put in place to ensure the health and safety of the community, our Cougar Commencement Caravan is not permitted. Therefore, the event will be postponed until further notice.

For student graduates enrolled in support programs, please continue to check your Cuesta College email. Information will be sent to you regarding a virtual celebration for the program you participate in.

This is a difficult decision, yet our number one priority is to ensure the health and safety of our community, students, faculty and staff.

Congratulations again on your wonderful accomplishments, we will celebrate with you and your families-loved ones soon.


Mark Sanchez, Ed.D.

Assistant Superintendent, Vice-President of Student Success and Support Programs, College Centers
