Fall 17 Semester Central

Welcome to Fall Semester Central!
Your One-Stop Guide to Getting Through These First Few Weeks of Class
Starting a new semester can be nerve-wracking, even for a seasoned veteran, so be sure to check out our Fall 17 Semester Central page dedicated to providing a quick guide to new and returning students alike.
Guide Me!
We answer questions ranging from "How do I read this darn schedule bill?" to "How do I activate my parking permit?" and "How can I get help paying for textbooks?"

New Campus Website Debuted

New Website Front Page
Our next-generation Cypress College website is now live. In this first-phase release, we believe you’ll see a site that is strongly student- and potential-student-focused. This first phase of the re-design has been developed completely in house. User feedback will be used to shape the next phases of the site.
New features on the website include a searchable staff directory, a robust calendar of campus events, and simplified navigational options. The site also features stories chronicling the success of our students and alumni.
Once you visit the new site, please be sure to visit the feedback survey to share your thoughts. The new Cypress College website is unrelated to the recent myGateway upgrade (more on that below). Since this is just a starting point, the site will continue to expand and evolve this semester while the full old site remains available to those who prefer it.
Thanks are in order for our in-house development team from Academic Computing — primarily Mike Land and George Isaac — and the efforts and leadership of Cari Jorgensen in the Office of Campus Communications.
