Step 3 – APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID
All 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. Click for more about Financial Aid Services.

Step 4 – TAKE A PLACEMENT TEST (ONLY IF YOU HAVE NOT TAKEN COLLEGE LEVEL MATH/ENGLISH COURSES)
To assure that all 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. Schedule to be posted shortly. Check back soon.

Step 5 – 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 6 – MEET WITH A COUNSELOR AND REGISTER FOR CLASSES
Counseling services are designed to be an integral part of students’ total educational program. Upon acceptance, all new students must meet with a counselor to discuss academic and career goals and plan their first semester’s course work. Click for more about Academic Counseling.

Step 7 – PAY ALL FEES
All fees must be paid and/or your Financial Aid award must be in place within 24 hours of registering for classes. Students who do not will be de-registered from their classes. Click for the Business Office webpage.
