This is a 2 step process! Please make sure to complete both steps.

                                         

Step 1: Click for Self Guided Placement online. Self Guided Placement will qualify you for Running Start.

We highly recommend that you attend a Student Planning Session in person. 

           Step 2: Go to the Cabrillo College home page. Login to WebAdvisor.  Click on Student Planning. Navigate to Fall 2019 in your planner. Search courses for CG51. Click on add course to plan. Make sure that you see CG51 in your planner for the Fall 2019 term. 

We highly recommend that you still attend a Planning and Placement workshop at Cabrillo College but, the 2 previous steps will qualify as students having an education plan and complete the workshop part for Running Start.

Important Things to Do and Know
  • You must have an email address to participate in Running Start. If you do not currently have an email address, we suggest you create one with a free provider such as Google (gMail) or Yahoo. If you are unable to create or view your email from home, you may use computers available at your high school, any public library and Cabrillo College.
  • When planning your classes, be sure to include CG 51 (Introduction to College) in either summer or fall 2019. This is a mandated course in order to maintain your priority registration for future terms. If taking CG 51 in summer, you need to submit a separate summer application.
  • To plan your courses, attend an Education Plan Workshop. This workshop should give you the help you need to select good classes for summer and/or fall 2019. 
  • If an appointment with a Cabrillo counselor is needed, do so by calling 831-479-6274 or 831-786-4734 or 831-479-6385. You must bring your assessment scores with you to the counseling appointment.
  • After your application is processed (please allow time for processing) you may log on to WebAdvisor.  Within WebAdvisor you may:
  • Search for classes and add them to your “Preferred Sections” in preparation for registration.
  • Verify your contact information by clicking on “Verify/Change My Contact Information.” It is important to keep your information up-to-date to receive communication from Cabrillo College.
  • You may use WebAdvisor to register for classes  at your designated date and time.
  • Reminder to students to register for CG51 for the Summer or Fall (if registering for a summer section, students must apply for the summer semester in addition to fall semester).
