Student Educational Plan (SEP)
An SEP is a suggested educational plan created by a counselor to help you move toward your goals to earn a degree, a certificate and/or transfer to a university to complete a bachelor's degree.
If you are working on any of these goals, you should meet with a counselor to develop your SEP before you register for your first semester. Then, meet with a counselor at least once a semester to review your SEP to have it updated or modified as needed.
The best time to schedule your appointment for your SEP is:
|Fall Semester (to plan for Spring)||September‑October|
|Spring Semester (to plan for Summer and Fall)||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.
