FSPS: First Semester Planning Session

First Semester Planning sessions 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.

For STEM Majors First Semester Planning Sessions are for new, first-time in college students who are considering or plan to major in a STEM field such as Biology, Environmental Science, Chemistry, Physics, Math, Computer Science, Engineering, and/or are interested in continuing on to a professional program such as Medical, Dental, Pharmacy, or Veterinary School (for example, to become a doctor, dentist, pharmacist, or veterinarian.)
