MANDATORY ONLINE ORIENTATION - Currently Offline

Currently, our Online Orientation system is offline, and students will be unable to complete online orientation in its entirety. We are currently working to solve the issue and plan to have online orientation operational again by 12/5/2019. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at (805) 546 - 3138.


The new student online orientation will familiarize you with Cuesta policies and resources and will assist you in planning your first semester classes. The online orientation now also includes the Math and English placement.
