Step 3: Complete the Online Orientation

Online Orientation >>

Matriculation Services >>

Whether you are a recent high school graduate, returning to college after years in a career, or attending college for the first time, our online orientation is a requirement. If you have completed orientation at another college, please provide documentation to Admissions and Records so we can update your record and so you will not lose priority registration.


 Step 4: Take Assessment Tests

Assessment Schedule>>

Do I Need Assessment?>>

If you are a first-time student with no prior college coursework, you need to assess for math, English or ESL course placement. If you have assessed at another college or have coursework in math, English or ESL, submit official test scores and official transcripts of that work to Admissions and Records so we can update your record so you will not lose priority registration.


 Step 5: Attend an Education Plan Workshop

Counseling Services >>

Identify your major early. Before you see a counselor for an Education Plan, you must attend an Education Plan Workshop. This two hour session will inform you of the components of an education plan and prepare you for your counseling appointment. You will leave the Education Plan Workshop with an “Abbreviated Education Plan" to get you started. This will also maintain your priority registration.

Education Plan Workshop Calendar >>

Sign up: 831.479-6385



Step 6: Meet with a Counselor

Counseling Services >>

After you have completed your “Abbreviated Education Plan” you are ready to meet with a counselor. The 30 minute appointment will build upon your initial education plan and lead to a “Comprehensive Education Plan.”  This will lead you to your education goals (degree, certificate or transfer). You will need to identify a major to complete this comprehensive plan.


 Step 7: Register and Pay Fees 

Continuing Students Register >>

New / Re-admit / High School Students Register >>

After you apply, we will send you a welcome letter by email within one week. Included in this email will be your Cabrillo Student ID number. You may use this number or your social security number to obtain your WebAdvisor username in order to register for classes.
