Dates, Deadlines & To-dos
So that we can be best prepared for your arrival to campus, there are several forms and tasks that you need to complete over the summer. The checklist below is a general outline of dates and deadlines for incoming students for the 2020 - 2021 Academic Year. Please know we are keeping a close eye on the COVID-19 situation and any potential implications for summer enrollment items and on-campus orientation. Regardless of the format of Fall 2020, these forms are still required so we can be prepared to welcome you to the CC community.
Most New Student Forms will be made available in late May or early June once students receive their CC log-in credentials and will be linked in the checklist below; should forms not be available until a later date, that will be indicated with a "coming soon" below and a "new!" once they have been made available.
If you are participating in a program that requires early arrival, such as the Bridge Program, International Student Orientation, or pre-season Athletics, please reference the Information for Early & Delayed Arrivals section of this page and check with program administrators as some items may have different, specifically earlier, due dates.
While summer schedules can prove challenging, we encourage all students to make their best effort to complete these forms on their own as no one knows you better than you know yourself. Allowing your parent, friend, or a family member to complete these forms on your behalf can lead to roommate mismatches and First Year Experience course surprises. Should you be unable to complete a form by the due date, please contact the appropriate office in advance of the deadline to make necessary arrangements for form submission; notifying us after the deadline has passed may mean we are unable to accommodate your requests.

This form is available within your Admission Portal using your admission log-in credentials (not your CC credentials).||Students using email or physical mailing addresses that will expire or change over the summer|
|Final Transcript||This is the last requirement of your application for admission and will be reviewed by the admission staff; so be sure to keep up the good work and maintain positive academic progress.||All Students (except exchange students)|
|Advising Questionnaire & CC 100/120 Course Interest||
First years spend their first two blocks at CC immersed in a pair of fast-paced, thought-intensive courses typical of the Block Plan. On this form, first year students will submit information that helps inform their CC 100/120 placements as well as their summer conversations with staff advisors. This form will be available within your Admission Portal using your admission log-in credentials (not your CC credentials).
While the Advising/CC100 form will remain open until June 30, we encourage you to complete this form by June 15 if possible as staff advisors will begin reaching out to schedule summer advising appointments via your CC email address in mid-June. In advance of your advising appointments, students planning on enrolling in math classes, majoring in subjects with math prerequisites/requirements (such as mathematics, the sciences, or economics) are encouraged to take the Math Self-Assessment in advance of their advising appointment.
*Transfer students should also complete this form so their advisors are best able to assist you in your transition to CC.
|All Students (except exchange students)*|
|Complete the Math Self-Assessment||
All incoming students will have the opportunity to take a Math Self-Assessment. We encourage you to take this assessment because it will help you decide on appropriate classes and support your success during the fall semester. It is not a placement test and takes about 60-90 minutes. You may take the self-assessment twice. Your best score will be shared with your advisor. Advising is scheduled to begin June 15 and you are encouraged to complete this assessment in advance of June 30, but the ALEKS platform will remain open past June 30.
Information about registering for the math self-assessment will be sent to your CC email in the Academics Newsletter.
