4 Welcome to College This is an exciting step in your life and a fresh start. You are beginning your college academic career with a clean slate and an opportunity to make the most of this experience. With this comes a responsibility to make the most of your college education. You might need to begin to create new habits. Below we have a few tips to help you be a successful student. Attend all classes! For many students, skipping class is hard to resist, especially if it's a big lecture hall class where the instructor doesn t know you. If you don't go to class you will miss out on important information and it will impact your grade. If you are out sick, make sure you contact your instructors to let them know why you missed class, and find out what was covered. Learn to manage your time. Instructors will hand out a syllabi at the beginning of the term which tells you when readings and other assignments are due. You need to take these syllabi and figure out how to best divide up your time. It is your responsibility to know and remember deadlines in each class. Use a planner/calendar to get a clear picture of due dates, deadlines and test preparation needs. Learn to balance work and play. Think about what you want from your college experience and make school your first priority! Your social life should come second to your school work, and you are the only one who can make sure that happens. Study, study, study! Instructors expect you to study 2-3 hours outside of class for every hour spent in class. In college, studying has to be a major part of your life outside of the classroom. Keep up on your reading. For courses with textbooks, complete reading assignments and reviews before the class session. Also, expect the majority of your reading assignments and projects to be completed on your own outside of class. Read actively by highlighting, annotating and summarizing your texts. Take notes on everything. In high school, your teachers probably gave you an outline of their lectures and told you what points would be on the tests. In college, the instructors often just talk. Taking good notes and knowing how to pick out important information from lectures and textbooks is a valuable skill. Consider attending a workshop to improve these skills or take a College Success course to bring it all together. Seek out help when you need it! Don't be afraid to ask for help from your instructors, counselors, the Academic Support/Tutorial center, and the writing/math labs. People will be happy to help you, but you need to seek out their assistance. You get to choose your classes and major. In high school, many or most of your classes were chosen for you. In college, you get to choose your major and your plan of study. This can be intimidating, and at times you may want help, so remember there are counselors here to help you! Your parents won't be able to help as much. By law, instructors cannot discuss your school work with your parents. The school considers you an adult, and sharing your personal information is illegal. Your parents may be able to give you guidance about classes and your social life, and if you're lucky, they'll help you out financially. Be an adult. Instructors will treat you like an adult, so make sure you act like one! Discipline problems will not be tolerated and students can be removed from class or from campus for acting inappropriately. 2

5 Choose Your Educational Pathway This orientation booklet has been designed to provide important information to help you achieve a Great Start for your first semester at Cuesta College. Which educational pathway is right for you? You will be asked to decide which group best suits your educational goals. Below you ll find an overview of each group: EDUCATIONAL PATHWAY 1 Cuesta College Career Education Certificate or Associate Degree Career Education and/or technical training courses are designed to increase your skills for employment. You can obtain a certificate in more than 50 fields at Cuesta College. These certificates can be obtained in a short period of time (1 or 2 semesters); the courses focus on a specific vocational area. You can obtain an Associate of Arts (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) degree at Cuesta College. More than 50 designated degrees are offered. You ll learn about the general education and degree requirements for these majors in your group. To view a list of degrees and certificates turn to the next page. EDUCATIONAL PATHWAY 2 California State University (CSU) Transfer The 23 CSU campuses, including Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, are located throughout California. On page 6 of this booklet, you will find a map with the locations of the campuses and information about this pathway. If you plan to be an elementary school teacher, or want to major in business, interior/fashion design, criminal justice or kinesiology (physical education or pre-physical therapy), choose this group. If you re interested in a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), choose this group rather than the AA/AS group. The Associate Degree for Transfer (AA-T or AS-T) is a special, new degree offered at California Community Colleges. The guarantee itself means that students who earn an AA-T or AS-T degree and meet the CSU minimum eligibility requirements are guaranteed admission to a CSU, but not necessarily to a particular campus. With the special degree, you may be given a GPA bump when applying to an impacted campus outside your local area or an impacted major that is deemed similar. In addition, once at the CSU, if you are admitted and enrolled in a designated degree program you have the opportunity to complete your bachelor s degree with as little as 60 semester units or 90 quarter units of coursework. A counselor will help you determine which CSUs offer bachelor s degrees that correspond to your AA-T or AS-T degree. It is still important for you to apply to the schools that interest you and to follow admissions deadlines to be competitive. Visit page 6 for more details on the specific AA-T and AS-T s we offer. EDUCATIONAL PATHWAY 3 University of California (UC), Private or Out-of-State Transfer The 9 UC undergraduate campuses, including UC Santa Barbara, are located throughout California. On page 6 of this booklet, you will find a map with locations of the campuses, and information about this system. The UC system is the most prestigious and competitive of the higher educational systems. As a California Community College transfer student, you will receive priority consideration for admission to UC, even above transfer students from other systems, including students already enrolled at CSU and UC campuses. Six UC campuses offer guaranteed admission to students who meet specific requirements through the Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) program. If you are considering transfer to a UC campus, or an out-of-state or private college, this group will guide you in selecting your first semester classes. During your first semester, meet with a counselor to discuss requirements for the transfer university you want to attend. 3

15 BUILD Your First Semester Class Schedule Start by thinking about your life and the time you can commit to college: To be a full time student you will need to take between 12 and 19 credits. Consider limiting the number of credits you take your first semester to 12. You can expect 2 hours of homework/study time outside of class for every hour of time in class. 12 credits = 12 hours class time + x 2 hour per credit = 24 hours study time = 36 hours class and study time + = 20 hours work/athletics = 56 hours per week Make sure you balance college and work: > If you work 20 hours per week, consider taking no more than 9-12 credits > If you work 30 hours per week, consider taking no more than 6-9 credits > If you work 40 hours per week, consider taking no more than 1-6 credits Then, answer the following questions: How many credits do I plan to take my first semester based on the information above? credits How many hours a week will I need to schedule outside of class time to study and complete homework based on the formula above? hours How many hours a week will I have work, athletics, family, or other obligations? hours Finally, follow these steps to fill out the table below: 1. Open the online Find Classes. 2. Select classes that fit within your own personal schedule: > Daily (Monday through Friday) > MWF (Monday/Wednesday/Friday) ONLY > TR (Tuesday/Thursday) or MW (Monday/Wednesday) ONLY 3. Look up the days and time of the courses you wrote down on Your My First Semester Courses (SEP) worksheet. 4. Select a section of a course and write the CRN # AND other course information in the chart below.

20 Counseling Services San Luis Obispo Campus 3100 Building: Counseling Dept: (805) or Career/Transfer Center: (805) North County Campus 3000 Building: (805) Arroyo Grande Center Arroyo Grande High School: (805) For more information The services provided by the Cuesta College Counseling Department are designed to help you be a successful student! We recommend that you meet with a counselor at least once each semester for effective academic planning. Counselors are not assigned to students; you choose your counselor. Appointments are scheduled one week in advance and are thirty minutes in length unless you have transcripts from other colleges, in which case you may be scheduled for an hour appointment. Academic Planning Counselors can assist students in achieving their educational goals through individual counseling appointments. Academic planning includes: Consideration of educational options, such as certificate, associate degree, and/or transfer Review of requirements for graduation, transfer and occupational certificates Selection of appropriate courses for your academic goals Assistance with problems such as academic probation or dismissal, or difficulty in a particular course SEPs (Student Education Plans) A Student Education Plan (SEP) is planning tool that you and your counselor create together based on your future academic and career goals. It outlines a semester by semester plan of suggested course to take based on major, transfer plans and sequence of courses. Effective Fall 2014 Priority Registration will be given to students who work with a counselor to develop a Student Education Plan, succeed in their classes and stay on track. Abbreviated SEP - one to two terms in length designed to meet your immediate needs and can be created before or after you register for classes. Comprehensive SEP - a more detailed SEP that in general is longer than one term.
