Education Planning

Education Plans – Important Notes You Need to Know

A new state law requires that all students have an education plan. There are two types; an Abbreviated Ed Plan (1 to 2 semesters to get you started) and a Comprehensive Ed Plan (laying out all of the courses you need to reach your goal).

Having an ed plan keeps you on track to reach your goal, and is one of the requirements in order to maintain your priority registration.

All students now have access to Student Planning, a planning tool found on your Student Menu in WebAdvisor. You can start to plan your courses using the Student Planning tool at any time on your own. Having courses planned for your upcoming term(s) in the Student Planning tool on WebAdvisor, will meet the Ed Plan requirement to maintain your priority registration.

For instructions on how to use Student Planning, click HERE.

To learn more about how to use the Student Planning tool, attend one of the Student Planning Sessions detailed below.

Education Plan Workshops are also available, detailed below.

Education Plan Workshops

This two-hour workshop presents important information and planning resources and is designed for new students, for those who have never developed an education plan, and for those who want to learn more about putting together a solid ed plan. You’ll leave the Ed Plan Workshop with an Abbreviated Education Plan using the Student Planning tool.

Some students may be required to attend an Education Plan Workshop prior to scheduling a counseling appointment. Select the steps below based on your situation.

 

If you are a NEW student, have never developed an Education Plan, or want to learn more about how to plan your classes (Click here)

 

  • If you have attended other colleges, arrange to have official transcripts sent to Cabrillo Admissions and Records. Official transcripts from previously attended colleges need to be on file before you schedule an appointment with a counselor.
  • Attend an Education Plan Workshop.
  • Develop an Abbreviated Education Plan at that workshop using the new Student Planning tool on WebAdvisor, and get it approved at the workshop.
  • If Financial Aid requested an Education Plan, inform them that you now have an approved Abbreviated Education Plan, by submitting a “Student Correspondence” form through eForms.
  • Schedule a counseling appointment (not express advising) to revise and further develop your Education Plan. Multiple appointments may be needed for a comprehensive ed plan. If Financial Aid requested an Ed Plan, let your counselor know that you need your Education Plan to be approved for Financial Aid.
