Applying to a California community college is simple. There are
two easy ways to apply: online or on paper. Begin your application
with a California Community College through CCCApply at www.CCCApply.org,
where you can either enter your information online for most
colleges, or in some instances, get redirected to a college web
site for instructions on how to complete your application on
Although the California Community Colleges enroll students
year-round, you should still apply as early as possible. If you
have questions or if you would like to talk to someone about
whether attending a community college is right for you, contact the
college's counseling office to make an appointment.
Already have a CaliforniaColleges.edu account?
There are some great benefits for you if you already have a
CaliforniaColleges.edu account through this site. You can transfer
all of the relevant information you've already entered, such as
schools you've attended, directly into the online application on
the CCCApply site.
To transfer your personal CaliforniaColleges.edu information,
simply log on to CCCApply with your CaliforniaColleges.edu username
and password. Then click on the California Community College
application from the list and click 'Start New Application.' You
can also use CCCApply to apply to more than one college. Plus, if
you file your community college application online, you don't have
to complete all of it at once. Simply save your work and return
later. Just don't forget to complete and submit your application
when you are finished!
