Cougar Welcome Days is an entirely self-paced online experience that will provide incoming students with the necessary skills to build their fall courses. 

Required Steps for Participation

Cougar Welcome Days are for a new first-time college student at Cuesta College. To participate in Cougar Welcome days, a student must:

  • Have an application on file for Fall 2021.
  • Have access to their student portal. 
  • Complete the online orientation through their student portal.
  • Complete all modules in this Counseling Canvas module (Available in April). 

Once you have completed all of the steps above, you will then register to participate in Cougar Welcome Day to confirm your Fall 2021 courses. Appointments are available Monday, May 10, 2021 through Friday, May 14, 2021 from 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM. 

Counseling Canvas Module

Modules are designed to be completed at your own pace. Find a quiet space to view the modules and give yourself 1-2 hours to complete the session. It is highly encouraged that you write down any questions you may have, so our Academic Counselors can provide the answers you need to be successful.
