After applying to Chaffey, you will be given a student ID number. Once you obtain this, attend a New Student Orientation in person or online (coming soon). The New Student Orientation prepares you to be a successful student at Chaffey College. The orientation provides information about the college, the assessment test, the Educational Plan, and additional support.
To schedule an in person orientation (highly recommended), please follow the instructions on step 2 of the new student checklist from the Counseling Department website.
An Education Plan is a guide that you develop with a Counselor to ensure that you complete the necessary courses to complete your educational goal (Certificate, Associate Degree or Transfer). You must complete New Student Orientation and the assessment prior to developing an Educational Plan. You may complete an Educational Plan by attending an Educational Planning workshop or through an individual appointment with a Counselor.
To begin an Educational Plan, please contact the Counseling Department at (909) 652-6200 to make an appointment to attend an Educational Planning workshop or meet with a Counselor.
The assessment test is a computerized placement tool used to determine each student's proficiency in English Composition and Mathematics. Assessment tests are taken after attending New Student Orientation.
Here are some ways to prepare for the assessments:
Math Success Center - Must be currently enrolled at Chaffey College to access services.
Language Success Center - Must be currently enrolled at Chaffey College to access services.
When you have completed steps 1-3, you will be prepared to register for your classes. Registration is the process of enrolling yourself in courses. Each student at Chaffey is assigned a specific date to register for their classes. Registration dates are emailed in the middle of the semester and can also be found on MyChaffeyView.
Assitance with class registration is available through our Guiding Panthers to Success (GPS) Center located in the AD Building, room 189 in the Rancho Cucamonga campus.
