Canada College Updates


  • Finals week for the fall semester is 12/11/16-12/18/16.
  • Spring semester classes begin on January 17th, 2017.
  • Spring semester schedules are available in our classroom. Students can also view available classes on webschedule (https://webschedule.smccd.edu/). You can see a brief description of a course by selecting the course and clicking on the course name. Students can search for classes at Canada, College of San Mateo and Skyline college on this link.
  • Students who intend to take a community college class in the spring must complete the College Connections Concurrent Enrollment form. These forms are available in our classroom. Parent signature is required. This form must be filled out every semester.
  • Concurrently enrolled students can register for classes on November 15th. Please submit the College Connection form to me at least one week before this date, as it takes time to process the form. Classes fill up, so it is best to turn in the form on time.
  • If you will be taking a community college course for the first time, you must first apply to the college. See this link: http://canadacollege.edu/admissions/apply.php. Read the information, and scroll down to the online application.
  • Talk to me if you have questions about any of this information.
