How to Enroll

Your step-by-step guide to applying and enrolling at CCC
  • Start here to learn about basic admissions requirements for all students. You’ll also find important dates for application, financial aid and other steps in the admissions process.

    Admission Requirements

    Central Community College is an open door college for persons 16 or older who are not enrolled in high school and who can demonstrate the ability to benefit from a program of study.
    Students need to have the following items in their file before being accepted:

    • Completed Application for Admission
    • Official Transcripts of all colleges previously attended
    • Record of pre-enrollment assessment if intending to pursue a degree, diploma or certificate.

    We recommend sending your Official High School Transcript or GED certificate to CCC, as some programs and services require these documents.

    Applying for Admission

    Early application is encouraged, especially if a student plans to apply for financial aid. Prior to the semester of enrollment, submit an Application for Admission form. Have your high school and/or college transcripts, or GED scores sent. Also, send copies of your ACT or SAT scores. Students with ACT scores below 19 will be required to complete the ASSET or Compass pre-enrollment assessment. Students will be notified of their admission status. For step-by-step instruction about how to enroll, select from the list below.

    Admission to the college does not mean admission to all courses or programs. Some programs have specific admissions requirements. For more information, go to the admissions section of our catalog or contact an admissions director.

    Non-Degree Seeking Students

    If you want to enroll in CCC courses without working toward a degree, you can call the records office to enroll in courses. No adviser will be assigned and you won't be eligible for financial aid. If you later decide to earn a degree you will need to be accepted by the college as a degree-seeking student.

    Early College Students

    If you are a high school junior or senior and are at least 16 years old, you can start earning college credits now through CCC's Early College program. Some classes are taught in high schools through distance learning, or you can take classes at our campuses or centers.

  • An affordable, high-quality education that gets you ready for a great career in two years or less or prepares you to transfer to a four college or university—that’s the CCC advantage.
