At the core of CSM’s community outreach efforts are the program services coordinator and student ambassadors. Together, the group is responsible for outreach and retention programs such a s Campus Tours, Operation Welcome Mat and Connect to College.

The team also works closely with the college’s faculty, staff and the external Advisory Council. The mission of CSM community outreach is to meet the diverse needs of the community while helping current and future students reach their educational goals.

Operation Welcome Mat
Operation Welcome Mat (OWM) is an effort to help students navigate the campus during the first week of classes.
Each semester, over 4000 student questions are answered at the information booths.

College Connection (Grades 9-12)
High school students can take advantage of an exciting enrollment opportunity at CSM called College Connection Concurrent Enrollment Program. This enrichment program enables students who are still in high school to get an "early start" on their college experience, and benefit from advanced scholastic or vocational work. It's free - for up to 11 units per semester!

New student registration is currently open for students who have completed the Steps to Enrollment.

Campus Tours
If you are interested in a tour of the CSM campus, please fill out the form on our Campus Tours page. Campus visits are on the second Wednesday of each month. You will be contacted within two business days to confirm your tour.

Priority Enrollment Program (PEP) For High School Graduates
High school seniors can take advantage of early registration by signing up for PEP. Students who complete PEP by mid-April will have a registration date of Friday, May 2. Submit a CSM PEP Event Request now to participate in this special half-day program.

Connect to College
Each year, CSM's outreach event connects the college to high school seniors and parents.
