General Online Course Information
There is no in-class orientation for online courses this semester. A week before courses begin, I will be sending enrolled students an orientation email with details about the course. This email will be sent to the email address that you have on file with Cabrillo. If that is not a current email address, please update it with Admissions. If you are enrolled in the course and did not receive the email, please email me and I will send you the orientation information.

Please log in the first day of classes—if you do not log in after the third day of classes, you will be dropped from the course to make room for those on the wait list.

Wait listed students, please email me the first day of classes to see if there is space in the course. Please do not email me before the first day of classes as I cannot add you before that date. The add process for online courses can happen without you having to come onto campus.

If you have already received your username and password, go to, and type your username and password into the spaces provided.

username and password change every semester and are case sensitive. If you are having trouble logging on, or have any other technical questions, call 831-479-5030 or email ,
