Visiting Student Registration

Getting started is Easy! Follow the steps below.

For more detailed instructions for the information below, go to CCAC's Help Center for Visiting Students Guide.


Find the Course(s) you are Looking for

Search our online course catalog (2022 Summer) and check the important dates in the 2022 Summer Academic Calendar. To learn about the ways courses are offered, click here. Use our tuition calculator to help you estimate your cost.


Confirm with your Home College if the Credit will Transfer

Use the 2021-2022 Program/Course Catalog to view the Master Syllabi. Use the Course/Master Syllabi for the 2021-2022 school year in the left side menu to see the master syllabi for the course.


Apply to CCAC!

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.

If you are a returning visiting student you do not need to do the application process again.


Get Financial Aid from Home College (Optional)

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.


Confirm your Account Information

Visit the Virtual Registration Welcome Center to verify your permanent residency and confirm your information on file.


Register for Classes

There are many ways to register for classes:

  • With an academic advisor through Zoom. Please have your photo ID and your unofficial college transcript with you.
  • If you were a student and have an active CCAC Account, you can use CCAC Self-Service. Search for the course, add the section to your schedule and click Register Now button!
  • Email the registration form. Complete and sign a registration form and email to [email protected], along with a copy of your photo ID and an unofficial copy of your college transcript (to verify pre-requisites).


Create your CCAC Username and Password

Create your CCAC Username. If you did not have to take a placement test, you will need to create your CCAC Username. You will use this to log into CCAC systems, such as MyCCAC, Blackboard, your Academic Email and the Online Student Account Center. For more information on creating your CCAC Username, click here
