California Community Colleges
Cuesta College, our local community college, offers classes at their main campus in San Luis Obispo, the North County Campus in Paso Robles, and the South County Center in Arroyo Grande. MBHS students have the opportunity to take courses while in high school and enroll in Cuesta full-time following high school graduation. Cuesta offers a variety of instructional programs; from lower division academic transfer courses, career technical education courses, short courses, distance education (online), to day and evening classes.
The Enrichment Program is available to high school students grades 9-12, who would benefit from "advanced scholastic" or "vocational" college coursework offered at any Cuesta College campus. Qualified students must complete these High School Enrichment Enrollment Steps to register for a class with Cuesta College.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN THE PROCESS of signing up, talk to your MBHS counselor about taking an Enrichment Course.
ORDERING TRANSCRIPTS: After you've completed the Cuesta course(s), request that Cuesta send an official transcript to MBHS Registrar to update your high school transcript. This step is only required if the Cuesta course was taken to fulfill an MBHS graduation requirement.

Cuesta College has partnered with San Luis Coastal, under a formal agreement, to schedule Cuesta courses on high school campuses during the regular school day. Classes are closed to the public and only available to students who attend the high school. These courses are taught either by a MBHS instructor or as a collaboration between an MBHS instructor and a Cuesta professor.
The enrollment and registration process for dual enrolled courses is administered by Cuesta staff in coordination with the high school instructor and other designated support staff. MBHS dual enrolled courses are primarily available through MBHS Career Technical Ed (CTE) Pathway course offerings.
The Cuesta College Promise is a scholarship program available to all San Luis Obispo County high school graduates. The Promise offers all local graduates—who come straight to Cuesta following their graduation—two years of attendance fee-free (two consecutive fall and spring semesters).
- To qualify for the Promise, follow each of THESE steps by their designated deadlines.
