Academic counselors are here to support you during your academic career. We help students navigate the at-times complex steps regarding transfer to four-year universities and in planning for Cabrillo’s occupational certificates and associate degrees.

We encourage you to take advantage of academic counseling appointments as we can help break down confusing processes, no matter where you are in your academic journey.

Academic Counseling for Transfer and Career Programs

By working with a counselor, students can develop an education plan to reach career or transfer goals. Counselors provide information about the requirements for Cabrillo's certificates and degrees, as well as information on the transfer process and requirements. Students intending to transfer can obtain an academic plan that will include admission and general education requirements, as well as courses to best prepare them for their major and the best chance of acceptance at a university.

Career Counseling

Career counseling enables students to understand their values, interests, and skills and to research a variety of career options. The career planning process also assists students in learning to manage job/life transitions. CG 54 is an excellent choice as the first place to start this process. Information about career counseling is available at our Transfer and Career Center in the 100 building or by calling 831-479-6385.

Courses and Workshops

We also offer classes, short courses, and workshops in career planning, study skills, general transfer requirements, and other topics as needed. Classes include CG 1 (College Success), CG 51 (Planning for Success), CG 52 (College Study Skills, and CG 54 (Careers and Lifestyles).

The counselors keep me on track and sane. As I’m both a student athlete and a nursing major, it really helps to speak to a counselor to learn about services.
-Andrea D., current student
