How to set up a CATEMA Student Account:

Do you already have a Cabrillo ID?

  • No: Start with STEP 1.
  • Yes: Skip to STEP 2**.  You can use the Cabrillo ID you’ve previously received to sign up for CATEMA. (If you don’t remember your Cabrillo ID number click on Log In and What’s my College ID here).


STEP 1: Apply to Cabrillo

    • Go to “CCCApply”, and select Cabrillo College from the drop down list

    • You will be re-directed to the Cabrillo College website, and will scroll down and click “U.S. Students Apply”

    • Open CCCApply account (email address required). This generates a state community
      college system account and assigns a 3 letter, 4 digit ID [This is NOT the Cabrillo
      College ID]
      Be sure to follow the step below.
    • “Continue” and complete and submit the Cabrillo College application

    Wait 24-48 hours for your Cabrillo ID to be emailed to you.  

    Please check your SPAM box.

STEP 2:  Create a CATEMA account and Enroll in your Class
