Catalog-Rights Information and Addendums
Catalog Rights Edition of the 2022-2023 Catalog
What Does Catalog Rights mean?
It means this version was published in the beginning of the Fall 2022 semester, and it is your contract with the college. It remains unchanged from the first day of publishing.
At the end of the Summer 2023 semester, we will ARCHIVE both this original, Catalog-Rights PDF version, as well as the final version of the 2022-2023 Catalog website.
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.

Graduation requirements are listed in the Catalog. 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.
For the purpose of this policy, “continuous enrollment” means attending at least one term (fall, spring, summer) each academic year. Attendance is required through the fourth week of instruction for semester length classes or thirty percent (30%) of summer classes and semester classes that are shorter than the full semester.
Catalog rights gained at a college outside of the San Mateo Community College District are not applicable at Cañada College, College of San Mateo, or Skyline College.
Catalog rights cannot supersede any State or Federal Regulation or requirement in effect at the time of graduation.
A student may earn multiple Associate degrees and certificates from Cañada College. Only the degrees and certificates that are approved by the state which require 12 or more units of course work will be posted to student’s academic record, and will receive diplomas for each degree and certificate of achievement earned.
To earn additional degrees and certificates, any course work used to meet the graduation requirements may count toward more than one degree and certificate. Courses used for one major may be used to meet requirements for additional majors.
Courses used to meet the competency requirements for the first degree may be used to fulfill the requirements for additional degrees, provided the student has maintained “continued attendance” (see the graduation and catalog rights requirements on page 50). If a break in enrollment occurs, a student must comply with the competency, general education, and major course requirements in effect at the time the student resumes attendance or any catalog year thereafter.
These worksheets were published near the Fall 2022 semester and remain unchanged. For the most up-to-date worksheets, please view the worksheets webpage in this catalog.
