The first step to enrolling in CCD is to create an account and apply online. Don’t forget to save your student identification number.

  • There is no application fee.
  • College Opportunity Fund (COF) pays a portion of your total in-state tuition and is eligible for undergraduate students. Simply apply for the COF on your admissions application (see the last question). You can also learn more about COF here.
  • Guest students (taking a couple of classes at CCD while enrolled in another college) are not eligible for financial aid. If you have applied as a guest student by mistake please contact us to update your account. 

In general, students who have completed college-level English and math coursework at a regionally accredited institution of higher education with a grade of “C” or higher are exempt and do not need to take a placement test. Unofficial college transcripts can be reviewed to exempt a student from taking all or portions of the assessment tests (math and English). Unofficial transcripts must be submitted along with a completed Transcript Intake Form for review. 

Students with minimum ACT/SAT scores within the past five (5) years may also be exempt. However, if the English and math assessment requirements are not met through previous credits you may need to submit unofficial/official test scores to the Testing Center or determine course placement through another means. 

Your SOAR session covers all of the important information you need as you begin your adventure at CCD as a student.

Topics include choosing the right classes, resources, financial aid, and scholarships, getting involved on campus, registering for courses, and more.
