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 Admissions Coordinator will send you your Academic Advisor’s name and contact information. Your Academic Advisor will work with you to advise you for your first semester classes and discuss any testing requirements. 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. After meeting with your Academic Advisor, you can then register for first semester classes and review any additional Financial Aid requirements.
