Welcome to College of San Mateo!  You are about to begin an exciting journey to exploring and achieving your educational, career and personal goals. You will challenge yourself, expand your skills and knowledge, and maximize career options to equip yourself for an ever-changing work environment. 

You have the opportunity to earn a certificate, an associate degree or to transfer to a four-year college or university - any combination of these!

At CSM, the staff, faculty and administration have an unparalleled commitment to student success.

"We meet students where they are, and take them to where they need to go while holding all students to high expectations."
