Registration Enrollment Priorities
Cabrillo's registration priority for the 2013-14 academic year is as follows:
- Disabled Student Program and Services (DSP&S), Veterans, Extended
Opportunity Program and Services (EOP&S), CalWorks, and Foster Youth.
- Continuing students with 30+ Cabrillo units
- Continuing students with 1-29 Cabrillo units (Freshman)
- New and re-entering students
- Concurrent high school students
Registration dates and times are assigned by the Admissions and Records Office based on this registration priority list and the units completed at Cabrillo College. Student registration dates and times are communicated to students by email and are also listed in a student’s WebAdvisor account.
Beginning with Fall 2014 registration, the following revisions will be in effect for priority registration, in addition to the priority categories listed above:
- Priority registration will be designated specifically for students who enroll in Cabrillo College for the purpose of a degree or certificate attainment, transfer to a four-year college or university, or career advancement.
- Priority will be given in the same order as above but include the requirement that students complete orientation, assessment, develop a student education plan and maintain good academic standing in order to use their priority registration rights.
- New students who do not have a declared major and have not completed assessment, orientation, and the education planning process will follow concurrent high school students.
- The final group eligible to register will be students who are placed on academic or progress probation for more than two semesters and/or those students who have earned 100 units of degree applicable semester units at Cabrillo.
- Students on academic or progress dismissal will not be eligible to register but must see a counselor.
- Exception to the 100 unit limit will be made for students enrolled in the high-unit majors listed below as long as they are making satisfactory progress toward their degree:
Astronomy: A.S. for transfer
Biology: A.S. and A.S. for transfer
Business: A.S. for transfer
Chemistry: A.A. and A.S. for transfer
Computer Science: A.A. and A.S. for transfer

- Units earned at other colleges and universities, from AP, Military, CLEP, etc., will not be considered in determining registration priorities.
- Enrollment in courses and programs may be limited to students meeting properly established prerequisites and co-requisites.
- If a student loses priority registration based on exceeding the 100-unit limit, or being placed on academic or progress probation for any extenuating circumstances (verifiable accident, illness or other circumstances beyond the control of the student), the student may appeal to have priority registration reinstated.
- Students on academic or progress probation who demonstrates significant academic improvement may appeal to regain their priority registration. The appeals process will be as follows:
- Complete the Appeal Petition form and submit it to Admissions and Records,
- Provide a written statement as to why registration priority and/or BOG fee waiver should be reinstated,
- Provide documentation as to the extenuating circumstance or significant academic improvement, and
- Provide completed academic progress report form; including signatures from instructors.
- Complete appeals will be reviewed and a decision will be communicated to the student using the email address listed in our student information system.
