To begin the enrollment process please carefully review the College Connection Course Enrollment Packet.
Step 1: Apply
To submit a college application, apply online at collegeofsanmateo.edu/apply.

Step 2: See High School Counselor

Step 3: Take Placement Test (if required)
Prior to enrolling, students must meet course prerequisite requirements based on college transcripts, placement test scores or appropriate measures. See the CSM Catalog or visit WebSchedule for specific course prerequisites. Take placement tests at College of San Mateo if you are planning to register for English or Math courses or any course with English prerequisites (for example: Chemistry 192).
