If you have applied to Cabrillo College AND completed the on-line Honors Transfer Program separate, required application by the March Deadline, any of the required documents may be submitted AFTER the deadline and your application will still be valid. However, we cannot fully evaluate your application until we receive all required documents.


New students must first also complete a separate, on-line application to Cabrillo College through CCC Apply - This is required even if you have previously taken Cabrillo courses as a concurrently-enrolled high school student. Click HERE TO APPLY to Cabrillo College for Fall Admission (beginning October, 2020 for Fall, 2021 enrollment)

NOTE: if you wish to take a course at Cabrillo in Spring 2021 or Summer, 2021, you may need to re-apply separately. It is advised to choose "Summer" on your CCC Apply application - as that will allow you to enroll in Fall as well (and you don't need to enroll in any summer classes). However, if you apply to "Fall", you will need to re-apply if you decide to take a MATH Plus boot camp, for example, a week or two before the Fall semester beings. Please contact Admissions and Records at Cabrillo.

If you are graduating from a Santa Cruz County high school, you should also participate in RUNNING START for early registration. See your high school counselor and refer to the Steps to Apply Fall, 2020 as a graduating high school senior to comply with those steps by the deadline.
