Admissions Process

High School Transcripts

Unless requested, high school transcripts are not required by CCC.

College Transcripts

For students that have taken college credit at a regionally accredited college and would like to use those credits at CCC, please request your official transcript be sent to CCC. 

CCC prefers official transcripts to be sent electronically.

Transcripts may be submitted electronically or by mail:

To be considered official, transcripts must be sent directly from the educational institution or must arrive in a sealed envelope.

Schedule an assessment

Pre-enrollment assessment has been waived for students wanting to register for classes for summer and fall 2020. If you have pre-enrollment assessment scores, please send them to CCC to assist with course placement.

All certificate, diploma, and degree-seeking students, and those enrolling in a math, reading, writing, or English Language Learner (ELL) courses will be required to take a pre-enrollment assessment. Assessment scores will be accepted for recommended placement for degree and diplomas for three years from the date of the test. Assessment scores used to meet the Basic Achievement Requirements for award completion do not expire. 

A student can be exempt from taking a pre-enrollment assessment if a student transfers from an accredited public, private, or independent institution of higher education and who has earned a “C” or better in a college-level English Composition course and college-level Math course.
