Early Registration

Now that you have been accepted to CCA, we know that you are excited to prepare for the upcoming semester. We have a unique process in place to help get you registered for the right courses. The early registration process takes place in June for fall semester and in December for spring semester. Preparation starts with the 10 Easy Steps to Enrollment, so if you have not already done so, make sure to review these steps first.

For fall enrollment, you may participate in early registration once you have submitted a $300 tuition deposit. 

For spring enrollment, a tuition payment is required in order to participate in early registration. (See "Make Your Payments" for details and payment deadlines).

Students not participating in Early registration will have an opportunity to register for courses during orientation.
