Before moving to the next step, be sure to have completed Steps 1-4 from the New, First Time College Student webpage.

STEP 5: Register for Math and English Classes

Per the passage of Assembly Bill 705 by the California State Legislature, all students have the right to register for transfer-level English and math classes and are encouraged to do so in their first semester of college.  

To get started, log on to your Class-Web account (instructions). Under the Student Services tab select "English Course Selection" and "Math Course Selection." 

Watch this video on how to log into CLASS-Web

Don't hesitate to contact the Assessment Center at or zoom-in with us if you need assistance.

STEP 6 - Plan your classes for your First Semester with the help of a counselor.

First Semester Planning sessions (FSPS) are for new, incoming, first-time in college students planning to attend Chabot College as their primary campus and who are pursuing a degree/certificate or transfer

A FSPS will help you plan out your first semester of classes.

NOTE: High School Concurrent Enrollment students do not need to complete this step. If you have previously attended another college or are a continuing Chabot student, we recommend you speak with a counselor (drop-in or appointment) instead.

  • Appointments fill up quickly. If no appointments appear, please return regularly as new appointments become available each week.
