Frequently Asked Questions

What am I required bring to the assessment session?

You are required to bring a photo ID, your Cabrillo student ID number, and the certificate of completion from the online orientation. Exceptions will not be made.

Is the online Orientation required?

YES! All new students are required to complete Cabrillo’s online orientation and the Not Anymore Sexual Assault Prevention orientation. It will take about an hour. Proof of completion is the Completion Certificate with your name; this can either be a screenshot on your phone or a print out. Both orientations can be accessed through WebAdvisor.

Can I challenge the assessment process?

No. Certain classes can be challenged, but not the assessment process.
