STEPS TO GETTING STARTED

Applying to and registering for classes at Chabot College involves some important steps. Each step is described with specific instructions for new, returning, and continuing students.

STEP 1 APPLY FOR ADMISSION ONLINE
Continuing students can skip to next step.
New and returning students must submit an application for admission. Apply online at www.chabotcollege.edu. For assistance, visit Student Online Services (Building 700, 1st Floor). After applying and being admitted, you will get a unique student ID number (W number) by email. Returning students will retain their previous Chabot College student ID number.

If you do not receive this email (check your spam folder too) within two business days after submitting your online application for admission, you may also obtain your student ID number by:

A. If you provided your social security number when applying
online, then log into CLASS-Web:
• Go to www.chabotcollege.edu.
• Go to CLASS-Web.
• Enter your user ID (Your social security number).
• Enter your PIN (Your birthdate in numerical format: MMDDYY).
• Log in and click the What is my W ID? link.
If your PIN is disabled, visit the Admissions and Records Office with your photo ID or email ccarcom@chabotcollege.edu.

B. If you did not provide a social security number when applying online, then you may obtain your student ID number by visiting the Admissions and Records Office with your photo ID.

After obtaining your student ID number, students who attended another college / university must submit their official college transcripts to the Admissions and Records Office.

STEP 2 APPLY FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
All students should consider applying for financial help. Financial aid can help pay for enrollment fees, books, transportation, and other educational costs for eligible
students. (visit the Financial Aid website for more detail.)

STEP 3 COMPLETE ASSESSMENT
All students planning to register for certain English, ESL, or Math classes or any class requiring the assessment test to prove appropriate skill level must complete the assessment test or provide proof of having completed a qualifying exemption. Returning and continuing students who previously completed the assessment test, and who are satisfied with their results are not required to complete this step again. (See Assessment Center website for assessment dates and times.)

STEP 4 COMPLETE THE ORIENTATION
All students should complete the online orientation available at www.chabotcollege.edu/counseling/orientation.Returning and continuing students who previously completed the orientation are not required to complete this step again.

STEP 5 COMPLETE YOUR STUDENT EDUCATIONAL PLAN (SEP)
New, first time in college students should attend a PSCN 25 group planning session to create an abbreviated, one-semester SEP. Returning, new transferring-in, and continuing students who do not have an SEP on file should visit the Counseling Front Desk (Building 700, 2nd Floor) or call 510.723.2642 to request an appointment to develop an SEP.
