Visiting Student Registration

Who is a New Visiting Student?

  • You do not want a degree from CCAC
  • You go to another college and want to take a course(s) at CCAC
  • You have never attended CCAC or taken a CCAC course


Enrollment Steps

Find the Course(s) You are Looking for

Search our online course catalog and check the important dates in the Academic Calendar. To learn about the ways courses are offered, click here. Use our tuition calculator to help you estimate your cost.

Will the Credit Transfer?

Use the CCAC Catalog to find the Master Syllabus for the course(s) in which you intend to enroll. See Courses/Master Syllabi on the left side menu to see the master syllabi for the course. Share this syllabus with your advisor at your home school to confirm the course will transfer.

Complete your Application to CCAC

Returning to CCAC? If you have attended CCAC credit courses in the past, you do not need to complete the application process again. Visit the Registration Welcome Center to confirm your student information and reactivate your academic program.

Apply Online Today! You will need to create an account, choose "Visiting Student" for your area of interest; do NOT select the major that you are pursuing at your home school. Once your account is created finish your application. If you have taken classes at CCAC before, you can skip this step.

Does the class you want to take have pre-requisites? If you have completed pre-requisite coursework at your home school, submit a copy of your unofficial college transcript with your registration. If you have not completed the pre-requisite, you may be required to take CCAC placement tests.

Create your CCAC NETID and Password

Once admitted to CCAC creating your CCAC NetID username and password will allow you to access important college resources—like CCAC Self-Service to plan your courses and view financial aid, the MyCCAC portal and more!

Apply your financial Aid

Check with your home college to see if you are eligible to use your financial aid to pay for course(s) from CCAC. This allows students to take coursework at two institutions at the same time.
