Guided Placement

How to complete Guided Placement:

  • In-person:
    • Attend a Placement and Planning Workshop at Cabrillo to help you through the process. Designed for first-time college students, this FREE workshop is a hands-on introduction to Cabrillo’s online student portals: MyCabrillo, Student Planning and eForms. With guidance from faculty and staff, you will complete the Placement Process, choose and then plan your English and math courses. We will assist you to select the classes that best suit your needs and your Education Plan. Attend this workshop to give yourself a solid start in the Education Planning Process; prepare for an Ed Plan Workshop and your first counseling appointment.
