We offer a wide variety of occupational, transfer and general education programs, and have over 700 classes for you to choose.

During the last ten years, Cuyamaca College has steadily increased in enrollment and now has well over 9,000 students. The college has nearly 100 dedicated full-time faculty and administrators, and over 100 caring and supportive staff members. We currently offer 57 associate degree programs and 70 certificates. In addition to providing our students with an array of in-demand occupational and pre-professional programs, Cuyamaca College is a leader in preparing students for transfer to both the California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC) systems, as well as to many private colleges and universities.
As you might have already gathered, Cuyamaca College has a well-deserved reputation of ‘leading the way’ – from developing the region’s workforce to providing the highest quality instructional programs in some of the most beautiful and newest facilities. In spring 2007, Cuyamaca College opened a state-of-the-art Science and Technology Center that provides students with the most up-to-date technologies in computer and information as well as earth sciences and further establishes Cuyamaca College as the “Gateway to Health Professions and Biotechnology”. Just this past fall, Cuyamaca College celebrated the grand opening of its award-winning Student Center, and most recently, we celebrated the long-awaited grand opening of the spectacular Communication Arts Center. Currently, the college is in the process of constructing a fourth new facility – the Business/Computer Information Sciences building. These new and welcomed additions are being complemented by a host of facility renovations and overall campus improvements - such as ample parking, easily accessible walkways, and convenient signage.
These new and welcomed additions will be complemented by a host of facility renovations and overall campus improvements which together will greatly expand the range of instructional programs and student support services that our students have come to enjoy and expect. Our students not only enjoy the benefits of studying in these state-of-the-art facilities, but do so while attending classes on one the most beautiful college campuses in the state. Nearly 30% of the college campus is a protected nature preserve! In addition to the nature preserve, students attending Cuyamaca College also enjoy spending time at the Heritage of the Americas Museum and the Water Conservation Garden, both located on the college’s grounds.
