Priority Engagement Program

The Priority Engagement Program (PEP) is designed to create an easy transition from high school to college.  It is a one stop shop event for our incoming Fall 2022 semester students.  PEP provides incoming students the opportunity to complete both their orientation and counseling requirements all at one time.  ( These two requirements must be completed before you students can register for classes. )  Attending PEP also allows students to register during the early registration period.

Before you attend a PEP event, you should complete the below steps: 

Complete an Online College Application for Admission at
Watch for an email with your Cañada Student ID Number (G# = G + 8 numbers) and information regarding next steps.


You will receive a Welcome email from Cañada College (usually) within 24 business hours. 
If you submitted your application on the weekend, you may get it the next business day. 

Your Welcome email will have your G# (this will be your college student ID). 

You will need your G# to before you are able to do your orientation and counseling apointment requirements.


Please check with your high school college counselor to see if there is a PEP event for your high school.
If you are unable to attend that PEP event, we encourage you to attend one of our evening PEP events, which are open to everyone.
