New Student Steps for Enrolling


Step 1 – APPLY FOR ADMISSIONAPPLY NOW

All new students must submit an admissions application. To complete your admissions application, please submit the following:

Provide proof of high school completion. This may be either a high school transcript, diploma or GED.

Provide proof of immunization for measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella. You may download the immunization requirement form.

Step 2 – APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID

All new students are encouraged to apply for financial aid. Capital Community College provides a variety of financial aid programs in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and jobs to eligible students. The amount and type of aid received is dependent upon the student’s financial need as well as annual federal and state allocations.

Step 3 – TAKE A PLACEMENT TEST

To assure that all new students are adequately prepared for college-level courses, basic skills placement tests must be taken prior to registration. Students whose native language is other than English must take an ESL (English-as-a-Second Language) test. The results of these tests are used by the college staff to place students into appropriate courses.

Step 4 – ACTIVATE YOUR STUDENT EMAIL AND TECHNOLOGY ACCOUNTS

All students will be issued a CT Community College email address. All communication from the school, including information regarding your financial aid award will be sent only to your CT Community College email address. Additionally, At Capital we utilize a software portal called myCommNet that allows you to access your grades, schedule, online coursework and library databases.

More information about your student email and technology accounts can be found in your acceptance email or at Congratulations.

STEP 5 – ATTEND A NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION (NSR) SESSION

The purpose of Academic Advising is to inform, assist, and transition all new students with 0-15 credits. All New Students (first time to college with no transfer credit) are required to attend a New Student Registration Session to review the steps to a successful semester, become familiar with MyCommNet, and register for first semester courses.
