CCV students can enroll during three windows throughout the year, and each program offers a pathway to additional educational and career opportunities.

Students must be new to the academic program and enroll in at least two courses.

CCV is also offering additional scholarships to students who enroll at least half-time in a subsequent semester (summer or fall 2021). Contact your local financial aid counselor for more information.
