Students returning after an absence - Students who have attended COCC but have been absent for four quarters or more, must submit a new application as early as possible in order to receive timely registration information. No application fee is required.
Transfer students - Students transferring from another college or university must submit an application for admission and an application fee, if they have never attended COCC. In addition, all official transcripts from previous institutions must be submitted prior to advising and/or registration.
Students not seeking a certificate or degree - Many students take college credit courses at COCC, yet are not planning to earn a certificate or degree. Such students apply through the regular application process and are required to take the placement test prior to registration. Some students may be exempt from the placement test; see the College website for exemption criteria. Non-certificate/non-degree-seeking students are not required to participate in advising but are welcome to do so.
