Contact our registration staff at 831-479-6331 for more information.
Can I register for a class that is full?
Most Extension classes have a maximum class size. For example, a computer course is limited in size by the number of computers available in that classroom.
If you wish to be considered for registration in a class that is currently full, you can request to be added to a waiting list by signing in online and clicking “Add Me to the Waiting List” link next to the class that is full. If an opening becomes available, Cabrillo Extension will email or call you to finalize your registration.

When is a course canceled?

Cabrillo Extension makes every effort to maintain the schedule of courses as announced in our catalog. However, we reserve the right to cancel courses, change instructors, switch rooms, and combine classes when necessary without previous announcement. If this occurs, you will receive a refund if you do not transfer to a different course or class section. Cabrillo College is not bound by printing errors in our publication.

Where can I get directions to my course location?
Directions to your class location are found in the confirmation letter sent prior to your class start date. You can also find directions in the course catalog.

How do I print a receipt?
To print a receipt for classes, just sign in and select "My Transactions" and locate the class. Under "Action", select "Print View" and print your receipt.

How do I print a transcript?
To print a current transcript of classes you'll need to sign in and select "My Transcript" from the menu bar on the left side of your screen. In the upper left corner of the export link, select the format you would like and print. If you need an official transcript, please contact us at 831-479-6331.
What is the refund policy?
Classes canceled by Cabrillo will be refunded in full. If you paid by credit card a credit will be issued to your card. If you paid by check or cash a refund check will be processed and mailed to you. 

We will gladly process your request for a refund or transfer if it is received at least five (5) business days prior to the beginning of the class (unless otherwise noted). There is a 10% service fee, subject to a $5 minimum charge.

Please do not e-mail us your refund request. Call the Extension Office at 479-6331. We cannot accept requests for refunds or transfers, regardless of the reason, if they are received less than five (5) business days prior to the class start date. If you find at the last minute that you are unable to attend a class, you may send someone in your place.

Different refund policies apply to CabrilloArts, Kids on Campus and Motorcycle Safety.
