5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I've only had to deal with transferring two classes from a different community college, but all I had to do was send my electronic transcript and it was accepted the next week.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: Since switching from Blackboard to Canvas for the online courses, navigation and access to online materials has gotten one million times easier. I loved my online classes this semester. Most classes you take will have some element that is online, either posting lecture slides, discussion or assignments. Very easy once you get used to it, and the app for iPhone is great!

3 College Senior

Career Services: I didn't really take advantage of much of these services, but transferring was a simple process that I was able to get plenty of help on.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Most classes are lecture based with some discussion, group work and projects. Join the honors program for a more intensive, academic-focused experience and some bomb teachers. Very laid back here.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The quality is great for only an associates degree. I definitely feel like I've learned a lot. There are a lot of career focused degrees, like in early childhood education, fire tech, and computer information services.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: JOIN THE HONORS PROGRAM. That was what made my academic experience here at Cabrillo worthwhile. Looks good on transfer applications, and you get smaller classes with awesome professors.

Use ratemyprofessor.com... Most teachers here are great, but there are definitely a few that must be avoided.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Cabrillo is an amazing community college, and you will definitely get your money's worth. Most professors are kind, intelligent and accommodating, I've also never had an instructor who didn't insist on being called by their first name. If you are more focused on academics, I highly recommend the Honors Transfer Program. It's not that hard to get in, looks good on transfer applications and gives you smaller classes with awesome instructors. It's definitely easy to just get lost in the crowd and not participate in campus activities, clubs, sports, etc. However, if you want to, you can get involved in whatever you want. There's a club for almost anything, and if there isn't one, it is super easy to start one. My only regret is not taking advantage of all the cool social events that take place here at Cabrillo. Counselors aren't great, but they also aren't the worst. You just have to find one you really connect with in order to get what you want from them. ASK FOR HELP. Seriously. If there's something that you need, or information that you want, ask someone who you think would be qualified.

Overall, Cabrillo is an awesome way to save money if you are planning on transferring, and also a great place for older adults to go back to school to finally get that degree.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I have been successful in making my schedule flexible and made sure that I took the right courses by making counseling appointments once a semester.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: It is great for those who are not outgoing as students and it is also convenient for those who have a busy work schedule.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All the professors I have had are all really great, knowledgeable and engaging with the students.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have not had very much experience with the job/internship aspects of the school. I think it is ok.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There is a lot of homework regardless of if you are a part or full time student and depending on the courses. The Liberal Studies major is perfect for those who are not sure what they want to study yet.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a great place for the first two years of college.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Unfortunately, Cabrillo has limited course offerings. Some courses are only offered at one time. For example, I am taking Bio 9A next semester and it is ONLY offered at 8 am. Since I need that course, I have no other choice but to go at that time. While it works for me, it may not work for another person.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: I had a great experience taking Math 152- Intermediate Algebra online. I received a 98% in the class because of the videos online and the support in the MLC.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My previous statement about the Chemistry department is applicable here.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Everything is wonderful, but I have to take off one star for the Chemistry program at Cabrillo. For many of us pre-med and STEM majors, a year of Chemistry is a typical prerequisite for moving on. Unfortunately, it is a known fact around campus that the chemistry professors here are not very good. So much so, that I have been recommended to commute to other colleges for the courses. The professors here are tough, not approachable, and make the subject matter incredibly difficult to master. And no, I'm not just saying that for students that don't want to show up to class and do the work. I am a 4.0 student who has talked to many other highly intelligent students here that feel this way about the Chemistry department. It bothers me to think about all of the potentially wonderful STEM majors and med students that decided to go another way because of a terrible Chemistry experience.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love Cabrillo College. It has a small, community feel to it while at the same time quite a bit of diversity. The instructors are (mostly) out of this world fantastic. I feel very supportive here at Cabrillo, and there are many wonderful resources. There is free tutoring that you can sign up for in the library, where you schedule sessions that meet weekly. The Math Learning Center (MLC) is a wonderful place to go and seek assistance on assignments, which has always been helpful to me. I took algebra online, and walked away with a 98% in the class because of the support in the MLC. Additionally, the STEM center is wonderful for those in a STEM major. I go there frequently for Chemistry assistance, and love having a community of people to be around that are taking the same type of classes. Everyone there is really helpful, and I love that there is a big couch and kitchen that makes it feel like you are home. I received a free rental textbook this semester because of a program they have that allows students to rent textbooks for free until funds run out. I actually got through this semester without paying for a single book- and I'm taking two STEM classes and an English class!

All in all, Cabrillo is a fantastic value and a high quality education. A+.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Very flexible! That is one of the biggest perks with attending Cabrillo.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: I have taken 6 online courses and have loved them all. I have learned a lot from the courses and have had the flexibility to do the coursework on the weekends when I had work off. Online courses are great for those with a lot of self motivation and who need a more flexible school schedule.

3 College Senior

Career Services: It is available but isn't made very easy to understand.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Class sizes are usually on the smaller size which gives individuals a chance to get close to their professor and classmates.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I found an internship but it wasn't easy. I would recommend getting an internship outside of the school!

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Most of the teachers are great and help students to achieve their goals. Rebecca Morgan is a great teacher, if you can get her for Bio Psych then you'll have a great experience.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Cabrillo gives people the chance to save money on tuition costs as well as create ones own schedule. The flexibility Cabrillo gives is unbeatable! If you follow the course plan, it is easy to get out in 2 years with an associates degree!
