    • Practice using CCC software and technology
    • Experience campus culture
    • Prepare for coursework

    Space is limited. Register in advance for Successful Student Prep. You will need to complete the COMPASS, ASSET, or ACCUPLACER placement exam or submit your ACT results before you can register for classes.  

    Please attend orientation at the campus where you will be taking classes. Also, note that although we will have bilingual staff available at each Successful Student Prep, we will also have one event on each campus location that will be conducted entirely in Spanish. These events are noted in the “Orientaciones en Español” section.
