Cuesta is a great stepping stone between high school and a four-year university! I took advantage of the Cuesta Promise (two years of free tuition for local high school graduates) and I couldn't be happier with my decision. I'm finishing up my final semester here with my Associate's degree to transfer, and I'll be off to Cal State Fullerton next Fall to finish up my Bachelor's degree. Cuesta isn't a hugely exciting school but I felt it had everything I needed to be a successful student.
it is a great school very easy to talk to and communicate. I am going to school to further myself in the medical field, so I will be partaking in their Psych Tech program. They have made this journey so far pretty great but a quick heads up you will need help finding housing (no on campus housing).
Cuesta College is a great community college in San Luis Obispo, California. They offer lots of majors for every student that wants an AA or transfer to a bigger college to earn a bigger degree. They offer programs for disabled students to help them through their college journey and not feel like they are left behind.
Cuesta is a great school if you’re figuring out what major you want to be focusing on, or are needing to save some money while taking general education classes. The teachers are AMAZING! I’ve loved all of my teachers, who are caring, intelligent and understanding.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Cuesta College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
The best advice I could have given myself as high school senior would be to stay focused on your education, and forget about impressing kids in class. After high school is over, being highly educated is valued more than the your status in high school. College is great enviornment to learn, to have many new expiernces and to focus on the future of your career in life.
There isnt much wrong with Cuesta, but i do think that they could use some more staff. Although, i know that due to budget cuts they are limited in this area.
Pretty minor... the conflicting class times for regular classes and kinesiology activity courses.
Cuesta is a Community College located in one of the most beautiful areas of California.
I absolutely love how supportive and encouraging the teachers are at my school. Each and every one of them seem to really care about the future and well being of each student. It's comforting to know that my the one whom are educating me see me as an individual and not just another student.
Any type of person could attend my school of choice. I am a single mom with a full time job so Cuesta allows me to work my classes around my personal life. They also allow you to get pre-reqs out of the way for the ability to tranfer to a 4-year collage as well.
As my school is well rounded and diverse, my classmates vary among age and educational experience, each contributing to the integrity and success of the student body of Cuesta College.
It has the best grade retention of any community college in the state, and has the best transfer rate to Cal Poly and many other UCs and CSUs. I chose this school due to its great location in the Central Coast and its proximity to Cal Poly and got the chance to talk to proffesors who worked at Poly and Cuesta.
Some classes are a lot harder than I expected, but the instructors do a great job of helping the students succeed.
i wish i had know how slow their financial aid department
If a person is not willing to come to class evryday then this not a right school for you. Even though it isnt a 4 year university, the teachers are just as qualified and you will benifit from being in small classes.
Cuesta College has a wide veriaty of classes. Many of the professors teach at Cal Poly or Allen Hancock College down in Santa Maria. They try to make the learning experience fun, while keeping a steady work enviornment.
Getting involved in sports are the most popular activities in college. Nothing is better than knowing you have a team behind you to push you to do your best both on and off of the field.
