All first time college students are required to assess
before registering for classes.
As part of the The Student Success & Support Program ("SSSP") the assessment process is required of all new students and is used for course placement in math, English and English as a Second Language. Before you assess you are required to apply and complete the on-line orientation. The enrollment and assessment process can take up to two weeks to complete and we are NOT able to accelerate this process for your personal academic needs.
You do NOT need to take the Cabrillo Assessment if you provide
Admissions and Records
official documentation of ONE of the following:
1. Transcripts: Successful completion of United States college degree or previous college level English, ESL, or math courses. Send us: Official transcripts from another college or university.
2. Placement results from another accredited college or university, including but not limited to any California Community College, CSU (ELM and EPT) and UC. Recency Policy: we do not accept assessment results from other colleges that are more than two years old.
3. Early Assessment Program (EAP) results:
FAX your Assessment or EAP results to:
Admissions and Records, attn: Evaluator: 831.479.5782.
In order to match your documents with your Cabrillo record, all score reports must include the following information:
Please allow ten working days for all results to be evaluated and placement entered into your file.
4. AP, IB and CLEP:
For English only:
For math only:
Advanced Placement (AP) test: Calculus AB, Calculus BC or Statistics with scores of 3, 4, or 5
International Baccalaureate (IB) test: Mathematics (HL) High Level with score of 5, 6 or 7
mail in or drop off official score reports to Admissions and Records
Recommendation from the math department: It is strongly recommended that students re-assess if their course preparation (either prerequisite course work or assessment score) is more than two years old.
Some courses require that a student read, write or analytically compute at a certain level before enrolling in the next course. This is a required prerequisite. You can satisfy prerequisites either through an assessment test or the methods listed above. A co-requisite requires that you enroll in the co-requisite class at the same time.
The assessments officially measure your skills in English comprehension, reading and math. There is no fee, you can assess twice in a six month period with a one week waiting period between assessments. Additional indicators or “multiple measures”of your skills and knowledge gained outside the classroom will be taken into consideration and given a numerical value in your final score. Your assessment indicates your placement level and whether you have satisfied the math, English and ESL prerequisites. If you have not "placed into" the class you hoped to, you may reassess. If you still score below your target, you must take the class indicated on the score sheet.
