Twelve Great Campuses, One Great Education!
Welcome to Connecticut State Community College.

On July 1, 2023, Connecticut’s community colleges will become one. Students interested in attending one of the twelve campuses across the state starting in the Fall 2023 semester will apply to – and be admitted to – CT State. Current Connecticut community college students who reenroll for the fall semester will also be CT State students.

The campuses of CT State offer more than 200 degree and certificate programs that lead to hundreds of careers. Whether you enter directly into the workforce upon graduation, or transfer to earn a bachelor’s degree, your coursework at CT State will prepare you for success.

You can explore all of the programs currently offered at the 12 campuses; a listing of current course offerings can give you an idea of the classes available at each campus.

  • Step 1Apply for Admission

    Apply online or visit ct.edu/admission for more information. Applicants must submit required documents to gain admission to the campus of your choice.

    Requirements for Admission

    Applicants must provide proof of high school or college graduation or GED and submit proof of immunity to measles, mumps, rubella and varicella (MMRV) to be accepted into a degree program, to be eligible for financial aid, and/or graduate from CT State Community College.

    Graduating high school seniors should apply and begin the enrollment process as early as possible, which includes course placement (in progress transcripts are accepted), completion of the financial aid (FAFSA) process, advising, registration, and payment of tuition and fees. Upon graduation, please ask your high school to send a final transcript to the Admissions Office.

  • Step 2Apply for Financial Aid

    Students must be enrolled in a degree program to receive eligible financial aid, including federal grants, loans or PACT funds. The FAFSA opens October 1 of each year, and students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. Priority deadlines for financial aid are May 15 for the fall semester and October 1 for the spring semester. Students applying for financial aid after August 1 for the fall and January 1 for the spring should be prepared to pay tuition and fees at the time of registration. If eligible and approved for financial aid, the payment may be reimbursed. Payment plans are available through the Bursar’s or Cashier’s Office to those registered for at least six credit hours. See Financial Aid for more information.

    CT State’s FAFSA Code: 007635*

    *Please note that this code will identify Capital Community College on the FAFSA. We have been advised that the Department of Education will update the college name on the FAFSA in the summer of 2023. If you do not list federal school code 007635 on your 2023-24 FAFSA, we will be unable to process your financial aid application for your Fall 2023 semester and the 2023-2024 academic year.

    Are you a graduate of a Connecticut high school who has never attended college before? You may be eligible for free tuition and fees under PACT: Pledge to Advance Connecticut.

  • Step 3Determine Course Placement

    Course placement is currently determined by final high school GPA and/or SAT/ACT scores. Students may also complete assessment testing as needed. Students that have completed college-level English and/or math must send an official transcript to the Admissions office of your preferred campus for evaluation. AP Score Reports are required to transfer AP courses.

  • Step 4New Student Orientation

    We know that you are excited about starting college and choosing classes that are right for you. To get you off to a great start, all new and transfer students must review the virtual New Student Orientation prior to registering for classes. This will be available to you next year, as we approach the fall semester.

  • Step 5Register For Classes

    Registration for Fall 2023 will open on April 4, 2023. Course placement and official college transcripts must be on file prior to registering for classes. Applicable classes will be transferred and applied within Degree Works as they fit into the degree program. Once registration is open, make an appointment with a Guided Pathway Advisor on the campus of your choice.

  • Step 6Pay Tuition and Fees

    Visit the Bursar’s Office immediately after registering to make payment or pay tuition online through myCommNet.
