Catalog-Rights Information and Past Catalog ARCHIVES

Catalog Rights Information

Each Catalog covers an academic year that reflects enrollment beginning with the fall term and includes subsequent spring and summer terms. Having “catalog rights” means students are held to the graduation requirements listed in the catalog at the time enrollment begins. Students may choose to use catalog rights for any subsequent year of continuous enrollment. For Cañada College, College of San Mateo and Skyline College, catalog rights apply to enrollment in any of the San Mateo County Community College District colleges.

Has your degree program requirements changed since you enrolled? Discuss your catalog rights with a counselor today.
