Send Us Your Transcripts

A final high school transcript is required. Please arrange with your high school to send a final transcript upon high school graduation to admissions@ccac.edu

Send your official transcript from each college you attended to transcripts@ccac.edu. These transcripts will be evaluated to determine courses you have already completed that can be applied to your CCAC program or for purposes of meeting pre-requisites for courses you plan to take at CCAC.


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.
