Enrollment Steps

Gather Your Information

  • Official college transcripts from all post- secondary schools that you have attended
  • Unofficial high school transcript


As a new student to CCAC, the first step to enrolling is easy! Simply complete the admissions application.

Send Us Your Transcripts

If you graduated from high school within the last five years and had an overall graduating GPA of 2.7 or higher, email your last semester/final high school transcript to admissions@ccac.edu

Another college? Send your official transcript from each college you attended to transcripts@ccac.edu.


As a new student, you may need to take several placement tests before you register for classes.

These tests are not an entrance exam. They simply help you choose the right classes so you can succeed in college.

These tests are offered online, so you can take them anytime, anywhere.

Our Placement Testing page includes information about exemptions and accommodations, registration links, and additional resources.

Note to Seniors in high school: Have your transcript sent ONLY after the first two grading periods or first semester of your senior year. Any transcript sent without those grades and GPA on it cannot be used for placement test exemptions.
