    • Transcripts: Have your final high school transcript and any previous college transcripts sent to the Records Office. If you have received a degree from another institution, official transcripts on file at CCC are necessary to register for most classes at CCC.

    • Schedule an assessment test: if you anticipate earning a certificate, diploma or degree or intend to enroll in an academic transfer course, please call us to schedule a time to take the ASSET/COMPASS, or ACCUPLACER pre-enrollment assessment. Completing a pre-enrollment assessment is required to register for classes. Scores must be current from the last three years. A college degree may allow for an exception. Some CCC health programs and transfer courses require current pre-enrollment assessment scores even if you have a degree. Contact the Admissions Office or the Assessment Office with questions.

    • ACT Test: Have your ACT scores sent to the Admissions Office if taken within the last three years. (The ASSEST/COMPASS may be waived if you have an ACT composite of 19 or higher and all subscores of 19 or above.)

    • Scholarships: Request a scholarship application from CCC Financial Aid. High school students may obtain an application from their guidance counselor. Check for scholarship deadlines.
