Short Term Classes for Fall 2023


Cuyamaca College has a variety of short-term class options available. These courses are the same as full semester course, but offered at an accelerated pace in 12- and 8-week timelines. 


Seats are still available in many of these classes for students looking to get ahead faster. A full list of all Short-Term Classes is linked below by start date. To enroll see the steps below for new students, or visit Self-Service for existing students. All students can visit the Welcome Center for help.  


If you are new to Cuyamaca College, you will need to complete an application. All students are accepted, so once you apply you will receive an email from Cuyamaca College within 48-hours to set up your Self-Service account (this is your student portal.)

  2. Complete orientation (on Self-Service) 
  3. Determine your math/English placement level
