5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Cuesta college offers classes at a much lower tuition cost than its university sister school cal poly, its more affordable to attend cuesta first to do general ed, they staff are great and they take you step by step through the process of financial aid and tuition cost, its very straight forward no nonsense

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Online courses are a great way to supplement your courseload because of the work from home aspect, it makes having a job and scheduling your workload much easier. My only complaint is that the majority of online classes are for students in computer majors there arnt enough classes online for every major and most majors none at all so it isnt helpful to the majority of students for that reason

College Junior

Career Services: I havnt had any experience with the career part of school most jobs require more than an associates degree so I doubt they have much for jobs after cuesta and they do suggest transfer to a four year

4 College Junior

Facilities: The campus is outside of town nestled in a rural valley with majestic views of mountain peaks farmland and beautiful sky for an art major thats a huge plus it is off a highway so there is noise which is unfortunate but the beauty of the area is a plus, the staff is friendly and the buildings not to bad.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I have run into problems but only once, I took a summer math class which was supposed to count as 5 units and planned to graduate right after, there was some mix up and it ended up being a half a unit short so I couldnt finish

5 College Junior

Student Body: Cuesta college is a diverse school both academically and ethnically, the school offers aa and as degrees in many fields of study and has students from many cultural backgrounds including foreign exchange students. The typical cuesta student is coming from high school unsure of what to major in and taking the general education units while interacting with students from all majors, then transferring to a four year with a major in mind and general ed units behind him.....

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Cuesta college has an excellent art program with brand new facilities and a variety of art aa options. The teachers are knowledgeable and friendly and strive for student success. There definetly could be better oprions for class times like late afternoon or evening classes for all the art classes especially for students with day jobs. At cuesta you can major in art history, fine arts or graphic design, they offer classes in drawing, painting, sculpture , pottery and photography for non art majors as elective credits. The fundamental skills required for success in art as a major are well developed concepts that the teachers both understand and communicate in a varity of ways to the students and the program is fantastic.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: The academics at cuesta are great, general education requirements for cu and usc are the only classses offered with many times slots and teachers to choose from, its easy to finish up your general ed quickly and you have the option of taking more classes than full time, full time being 12 units a motivated student without a job who wants to go to cuesta just to get general ed units out of the way prior to transfering can do so fast and eady and there are summer terms offered with the option on 4 week 6 week or 8 week summer classes

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The school has a large library but the majority of books dont cover all areas of interest, the cafeteria has some good salad options but could use more organic food, non gmo options and gluten free options, the recreational department has many great classes for non credit like summer swimming, the student center could use improvement its basically a doctor office waiting room setup with video games

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The computer lab has had tremendous improvement plenty of available computers with internet and printing capability and its very quiet, could use later hours like open til 9 pm

College Senior

Career Services: Cuesta is a community college and everyone is either transferring or earning a certificate. So, they are very helpful in assisting with transferring!

3 College Senior

Facilities: Cuesta tries to offer all that they can. There are all the facilities expected; however, there is no on campus housing as it is a community college.

4 College Senior

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Registration is easy and there are a lot of options for classes, class times, and type of class.
