Beginning Student Enrollment

Beginning Student Enrollment

As a first-time college student, you may be a little confused about the enrollment process, but don’t worry. At CTC, we make the enrollment process simple, from the application to attending advisement and registration.

How to enroll at CTC if you are a first time college student (beginning student):

  1. Submit a completed application for admission to the Office of Admissions and a $20 (nonrefundable) application fee along with your official, sealed high school or GED transcript. These items should be submitted simultaneously. Home schooled students, please review your requirements here.
  2. Take the placement test. Campuses which provide Placement testing do so at varied times. You may exempt the test if you submit acceptable ACT (19 English, 19 Reading, and 19 Math), SAT (460 Critical Reading and 440 Math), COMPASS, or ASSET scores not more than sixty (60) months old that meet our requirements.

Apply for and complete financial aid (HOPE, Pell, etc.) before the posted deadlines if you so choose.

NOTE: The College only accepts documents that arrive at CTC in a sealed issuing institution envelope. Open copies will NOT be accepted.

Students who attended school outside the US are required to have foreign transcripts sent to an approved evaluation agency. Foreign documents will not be accepted. Check with International Services for a list of acceptable agencies: 770.528.4528.
