WHAT IS IT?                                                                                                                                                                                  Cuesta QuickStart is a program of skills-refresher courses targeting students who are taking math and English classes below the college-transfer level (Math 127 and below; English 156 and below). All students can expect to increase their skills and comfort level with the course material; new/entering students also have the chance to retake the math or English assessment tests and place into a higher course level.

WHEN IS IT?        

Workshops are usually held during the summer or winter breaks, lasting two weeks of various days, on both campuses.  See the links below for scheduling information for our Summer 2017 workshops.
