It is my sincere pleasure to welcome you to Cypress College, where student success is our first priority. We are proud of our reputation for academic excellence, for the breadth and depth of our career and technical education programs, and for offering high-quality and student focused support services. At Cypress College, our award-winning faculty is recognized for providing students with individual attention and guidance, utilizing a variety of teaching approaches and methodologies to help you to succeed. Students will discover here a rich academic environment designed to nurture and support success.

Our academic and vocational programs are supported with a wide array of services. Among these are assessment, counseling and guidance, study skills classes, a library and learning center for individual and group study and tutoring, financial aid, and health services, to name a few. Our intercollegiate athletics teams compete at the highest levels, earning numerous state championships over the years. We encourage students to participate in our performing arts programs and student government activities, and to broaden their experiences by becoming involved with a variety of college clubs that are connected to their academics or to community involvement.

Cypress College has benefitted greatly from the support of the local community and has utilized bond revenue approved by the voters to improve and beautify the campus. Our Library, Student Center, Bookstore and newly remodeled Humanities Building all came into being as a result of community support and are state-of-the-art facilities serving students’ needs. Our vocational and career programs are strongly connected to our business community and provide instructional opportunities for students utilizing modern and current equipment.

We invite you to become a part of this community of learners. I believe that you will find Cypress College to be a warm and inviting institution, a place that nurtures student achievement and encourages student involvement. I look forward to seeing you here at the College, pursuing your dreams and achieving your goals in the spirit of excellence, integrity, collegiality, and inclusiveness that characterizes all we do.
