Week of May 13, 2024

Register for the Summer 2024 Session – Fall Registration Opens for All Students Tomorrow!

All students can now enroll in classes for the Summer 2024 Session, which starts on June 10! You can check the available Summer 2024 classes on WebSchedule and complete your registration via WebSMART . If you haven't already, don't forget to schedule a meeting with an academic counselor to create your Student Education Plan (SEP).

The Summer 2024 Semester is free for qualifying San Mateo County residents pursuing a degree or certificate. For more information and details on qualifications, please refer to our Free College FAQ. Priority registration for Fall 2024 started on May 1, and registration for all students opens tomorrow, May 15.

Important Financial Aid Information for Fall 2024

Due to technical issues with the implementation of the FAFSA Simplification Act, Cañada is experiencing delays in processing financial aid for the Fall 2024 semester, including FAFSA, CADAA (Dream Act), California College Promise Grant (CCPG), and Free College benefits. These benefits are expected to be processed by mid to late June, delaying the posting of registration charges until then, though Summer 2024 charges are unaffected. Cañada encourages students to check their my.smccd.edu email for updates. Please visit our district website on  FAFSA Simplification to see the 2024-2025 FAFSA changes, and refer to our Fall 2024 FAFSA Delay FAQs page for additional information. Students should contact the  SMCCCD help desk or Cañada Financial Aid Services for further assistance or to apply for financial aid.

Graduates: Please Complete Your Graduation Survey

If you are graduating this year, please don’t forget to complete an important, short survey to provide feedback to the College about your experience at Cañada. You should have an email from Karen Engel, our Dean of Planning, Research, Innovation and Effectiveness with a link to the survey. Thank you!
