Apply to the College of San Mateo and complete the application. You will receive a welcome letter from College of San Mateo which contains your student id number (G number). 

Step #2: Welcome Orientation

Visit WebSmart and log into your account using your G number and pin which is your date of birth in the following format (MM/DD/YYYY). Select the Student tab, then select the Student Online Orientation.

*IMPORTANT* Select the Priority Enrollment Program link in the orientation. Completing this form indicates you are a PEP student and you will receive priority registration!
