Applications for enrollment can be found here.

Step 1

Go to College of the Siskiyous OpenCCCApply link to register online. You should receive a confirmation email with a student ID and MySiskiyou portal login. If you do not receive this email, please contact COS admission and records at or call 530- 938-5500. 

Note: If you have already registered for a Siskiyous class you do not have to complete this step. You will already be in the system so you can begin at Step 2.

Step 2

Request paper forms from Sonia Wilson. Much of the information asked for is the same as the online registration so completing these steps together will save time. Once the paper forms are completed send them to Mr. Cushing at the email address above. He will work with the COS registrar to complete the registration process.

Step 3

 Carondelet will create a Schoology group with information on how classes run, how to use Canvas, orientation screencasts, and textbook information. We will monitor student progress at various points in

College Cost Savings

The average cost per unit for a California State University class is $191 per unit. For a typical 3-unit class in this Early College Credit program, that would be a savings of $573.

The average costs for a UC course are $502. For a typical 3-unit class in this Early College Credit program, that would be $1506.

Private university costs per unit vary, but a typical private college attended by a Carondelet student can range from $925 for Saint Mary’s to $1560 for Chapman, with some schools over $1800 per unit.

When these units transfer, the savings add up quickly.
