Admissions & Records
Apply to CSM

We are currently accepting applications for Spring 2014 and Summer/Fall 2014.

New students, returning students who have not taken a class in a year or more, and high school students
seeking concurrent enrollment:
After you submit the online application:
  1. Print the confirmation page.
  2. CHECK YOUR EMAIL (including your spam folder) for important information from College of San Mateo regarding your admission and registration, including your student ID number and information about your next steps in the registration process. This email will usually arrive in 1-2 hours, but may take up to one business day if there is a question with your application. Please note our Hours of Operation.
Note: If you have not received the "Welcome to College of San Mateo" email, it may have gone to your email account's spam folder. Please also ensure that you fully submitted the application. (After "Creating an Account" with OpenCCC, you log into that account to "Start a New Application." After submitting the application, you are taken to a Confirmation Page, which provides a Confirmation Number). If you still did not receive an email response, please contact the Admissions & Records office at (650) 574-6165 or csmadmission@smccd.edu. Please note our Hours of Operation.
