Student Educational Plan (SEP)

If you plan to obtain an associate degree or vocational certificate here at College of San Mateo or transfer to a university to complete a bachelor's degree, a Student Educational Plan (SEP) should be developed during the first semester in attendance. It is very important to meet with a counselor at least once a semester to review your SEP and make modifications as needed.

An SEP outlines a suggested course of study for the individual student based on major, transfer plans and sequence of courses. Students are encouraged to meet with a counselor to develop and update their plan each semester or when a change is made to their major, transfer institution or other pertinent objectives. You can make an appointment in the Counseling Center, located in College Center Building 10, Room 340, or by calling (650) 574-6400.

The best time to schedule your appointment for your SEP is:

Fall Semester
Spring Semester
September - October
February - March

Students who have completed lower division coursework at other colleges and universities and wish to apply that coursework to completion of a College of San Mateo certificate, associate degree, or to a California State University General Education Certification, or to an IGETC Certification should have their transcripts officially evaluated. For more information visit the Transcript Evaluation website.
