Hartford, CT – Capital Community College (CCC), located in the former G. Fox department store at 950 Main St, Hartford will be open on two Saturdays next month from 9 am to 1 pm: August 17 and August 24, to help new and continuing students enroll in Fall classes. For students who work traditional hours the college will also be open until 7 pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays starting August 13.
Staff from the college’s Admissions, Enrollment, Financial Aid, Bursar and Counseling departments will be on hand to assist students through the registration process and answer their questions. Placement testing will be available on a “walk-in” basis only. Students who need to complete placement testing must submit an application first and present a photo ID to testing.
New students should bring their high school diploma and immunization records in order to complete the admissions requirements. Students who need financial support to pay for classes and have not completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, (FAFSA) are advised to do so prior to coming to CCC. The FAFSA can be submitted online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
In recent years, new programs in business and technology have started at Capital, including the in-demand Cybersecurity and Construction Management. In the arts, the college has expanded offerings with the new Theatre Arts program, taught entirely by area theatre professionals. CCC is renowned in the state and New England for its expanded place-based programs, and this fall for the first time will offer an art course, History of American Art, held at the Wadsworth Atheneum. For the third year Capital will run American Government at Connecticut’s Old State House again, and for the fifth year Studies in American Literature will be held alternately at the Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe homes.
Fall classes at Capital Community College begin August 27. For more information, please visit www.capitalcc.edu , email CA-Admissions@capitalcc.edu or call (860) 906- 5140.
