Here are your next steps:

STEP 1: Review Your Letter of Admission

Your letter of admission includes important information, such as your CCM Student Identification Number, your program of study/major and any placement tests you may need to take before you can register for courses.

STEP 2: Financial Planning

It is very important to understand the cost of attending CCM and to ensure you can fund your education. As a degree/certificate seeking student, you may be eligible for Financial Aid. You should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible to secure any funding that may be available. Visit https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa to complete the FAFSA.

STEP 3: Academic Assessment for Math and English Placement

Students seeking to earn a degree (and for some certificates) are assessed for placement into college mathematics and English courses through several different evaluation models – (1) submission of SAT or ACT scores meeting minimum cut off for exemption (2) assessment of high school performance (students graduating within the past three years), (3) completion of relevant college courses or (4) CCM Accuplacer placement test(s). Once placement steps have been completed you will receive an email from the Admissions Office providing you with your username and password which will allow you to set up and access your CCM student email and online portal (Titans Direct, Blackboard).

STEP 4: Schedule a New Student Advisement and Registration Session (NSAR)

Once your Academic Assessment has been completed you will receive your CCM log in credentials from the Admissions Office. Following this, you will then receive an email to schedule a virtual New Student Advisement and Registration session with your Student Success Specialist (first year advisor) from the Academic Success Center.  Here, you will have an opportunity to learn how to plan and register for your courses and stay connected with your Student Success Specialist.

STEP 5: Purchase your Books

Avoid long lines and crowds in the Student Community Center!  Order your books at bookstore.ccm.edu before 8/31 to ensure pickup before classes begin.  You can even reserve with Financial Aid!

STEP 6: Join Us for New Student Orientation

Once you have registered for courses, you will receive an invitation, sent to your CCM student email, to attend a New Student Orientation, also known as FYI: First Year Information. The FYI Program will focus on, among other things, acquainting you with different departments and services that will be especially helpful to you as a new CCM student. You will also receive useful CCM materials. There will be an opportunity for you to get answers to any questions that you might have. You will also get information on your student identification card and how to register for your CCM parking decal. Please visit https://www.ccm.edu/student-life/campus-life/new-student-orientation/ for additional details.

STEP 7: Submit Your Immunization Records

Immunization records are required for all full time, degree-seeking students. The form can be accessed by visiting the Immunizations Information webpage or downloading it here. Please send your immunization records to the Office of Student Development & Enrollment Management via email to health-services@ccm.edu. Any questions may be directed to 973-328-5170.

STEP 8: Start Your Classes!
