Non-degree seeking students must meet the prerequisites, if any, for the courses they wish to take. Your Admissions Counselor will advise on the prerequisites required for your desired courses and review any test scores and/or transcripts and advise whether there are any unmet requirements. Once all requirements are met, you will be admitted to the college.

Your assigned Admissions Counselor will continue to work with you to advise you for your first semester classes. Check the Titan Start Portal for your Admissions decision, welcome letters, status of official transcripts, your username to access myCCTC and CCTCgo, the college’s mobile applications.

Non-degree seeking students are not eligible for Financial Aid at CCTC.
