The New 2017-18 Cañada College Catalog is Online!

The New 2017-18 Cañada College Catalog is Online!

The College is pleased to announce the new 2017-18 Cañada College Catalog! For the first time, this publication is published exclusively online. It’s important to note that, for the first year, a limited number of printed catalogs will made available to the campus (primarily to the DRC, Counseling, Admissions and Records, Division Offices, and the Library/Learning Center). Additional printed copies can be ordered through Central Duplicating for a nominal fee. With the new online catalog, sections can be printed directly from the website so you can print only the pages needed.

Publishing online provides students, staff and faculty several advantages. The new Cañada College catalog is now:
  • Searchable and regularly updated for new articulation approvals, program state approvals and minor changes and/or corrections
  • Responsive and mobile phone accessible
  • Downloadable in a PDF format
  • Printable by section or entirely
Please note that this is a “beta” version and is not the official “catalog-rights” version of the catalog. The catalog-rights version will be published in the coming weeks.

The online catalog was a joint project of all three colleges in the San Mateo County Community College District, and was made possible through the hard work and dedication of the team at District ITS, as well as Instruction, Student Services and Marketing staff on all three campuses.  I’d like to send a special thank you to our Cañada team, Jose Garcia, Jose Peña and Michael Ryan, for their work over the past several months. 

We hope that you find this catalog practical and easy to use. For feedback regarding the online catalog, please email

“When I decided to stay in this country, I wanted to keep studying as I was doing in my country,” she said. “Learning English became a new short-term goal in my life. I wanted to study English in college but I had to start from the beginning.”

She began taking community-based English courses offered by Cañada College at Sequoia High School. Later she moved to John Gill Elementary School to take a course because her nephew was in the class. When she finished her course at John Gill, Segura’s professor helped her sign up for the first level of English as a Second Language at Cañada College.

“When I started at Cañada, my goal was to learn English to find a job,” she said. “Now I'm pursuing my goal of becoming a nurse. The more I …
