Week of April 17, 2023

Summer Session 2023 Open Registration is TODAY!

Open Registration for the Summer Session 2023 is today, Tuesday, April 18! And thanks to the passage of Senate Bill 893, Cañada College will continue to waive the enrollment fees for students who reside in San Mateo County (some exceptions apply, see our Free College FAQ) for the Summer Session 2023!

As with this past semester, no minimum or maximum units are required to qualify for this enrollment fee waiver during the Summer Session 2023. If you qualify, it will be automatically applied on WebSMART when registering for your courses. Additionally, depending on documented financial need, students may be exempted from paying the student body fee, student representation fee, student union fee, inclusive access fee(s), and materials fees associated with enrolled courses.

WebSchedule has been updated with the schedule of classes for Summer 2023 and Fall 2023. Take a look and start planning your schedule for the upcoming semesters!

The Fall Semester 2023 priority registration date is May 3, with open registration for all students open on May 17.

Requirement Reminder

San Mateo County’s current COVID Community Level is LOW, and face masks are strongly recommended but not required indoors at any SMCCCD facility. As the San Mateo County community-level changes, information will be provided to students, employees, and visitors. At levels where masking is required, the exemption of not wearing a mask while actively eating or drinking still applies.
