These services introduce you to the world of college through an online ORIENTATION; helps place you in the correct math and English classes through ASSESSMENT; and helps you identify a major, a career goal and how to get there the fastest way through an EDUCATION PLAN. SSSP also partners you with a counselor who can explain the confusion that college degrees, career certificates, and transfer can sometimes create. Everyone needs that!!?? No reason to go it alone. "SSSP" keeps you on track by working with other services and programs on campus to help you FINISH. (Completing these services also gives you PRIORITY REGISTRATION and that is a big deal!)
After you have completed your “Abbreviated Education Plan” you are ready to meet with a counselor. The 30 minute appointment will build upon your initial education plan and lead to a “Comprehensive Education Plan.” This will lead you to your education goals (degree, certificate or transfer). You will need to identify a major to complete this comprehensive plan.

Education Plans – The Student Planning Tool
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 using the Student Planning tool will meet the Ed Plan requirement to maintain your priority registration.
For instructions on how to use Student Planning, click HERE.
Probation / Dismissal Workshops
Did you receive communication from Admissions & Records indicating you have a hold on your record due to Probation or Dismissal? If you are on Probation Level 2 or if you are on Dismissal, you are required to attend a Probation/Dismissal Workshop. For those on Probation Level 2, attending the workshop will clear your hold, and will provide you with the strategies and resources needed to work your way to a better Academic Standing. If you are on Probation Level 1, this workshop is not required but is highly recommended so you can avoid future academic standing issues.
When attending the workshop, please bring a copy of your Cabrillo course history using WebAdvisor "My Course History". A copy of your transcripts will also be available for you at the workshop.
