Registration Enrollment Priorities

Priority registration is designated specifically for students who enroll in Cabrillo College for the purpose of a degree or certificate attainment, transfer to a four-year college or university, or career advancement. Therefore, students who have completed orientation and assessment, developed an education plan, declared a major and maintained good academic standing will be granted higher priority for registration.

The Admissions & Records Office notifies students of their registration dates and times by email.  The information is also available to students via WebAdvisor.
