Guides for Completing the Application

Items to Note

  1. Students who select “undecided” as their major/goal will not be eligible for financial aid. We encourage students to select what they are most interested in majoring in/pursuing as of right now. See CCCApply Instructions for Updating Your Major (PDF).
  2. On the “Education” screen, be sure to enter accurate information. We recommend referring to your High school transcript to ensure that the information you input is true and accurate.
