All students must determine course placement in Math and English classes.

You will also be able to upload a copy of your unofficial transcript into the application if you have previously taken college-level classes.
Upon acceptance into the program, you must sign a letter of intent. This letter will be sent to you via your CCD student email from firstname.lastname@example.org. You are not considered a part of this program until we have received a completed letter of intent.
