A Message from President Michael Claire

I want to welcome you personally to College of San Mateo, one of the most highly respected community colleges in California.

As a student at CSM, you will be joining a long tradition of excellence.  Since 1922, CSM has served many generations from San Mateo County and the greater San Francisco Bay Area, helping students build their futures. Whether you are a first-time college student, continuing student, or returning to college after several years, you have a place at CSM.

CSM's award-winning faculty and outstanding staff can help you plan your future whether your goal is to transfer to a university, earn a degree, enhance your job skills, or pursue a new career.

We offer more than 900 classes each semester to meet the diverse needs of our students. Many are delivered online and in accelerated or open-entry format.

We are pleased that you chose CSM as a place to learn, grow and accomplish your goals, and we are here to support you every step of the way. I invite you to take advantage of all that CSM has to offer.
