At the core of CSM’s community outreach efforts are the college recruiter and student ambassadors. Together, the group is responsible for outreach and retention programs such as 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.

Connect to College
A night of Information for High School Seniors and Parents

Meet CSM students, faculty, staff, administrators and alumni on this special night. Learn how CSM can help you reach your transfer and career 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.
