Information for New Online Students

Whether you are pursuing a degree online or just taking a few online courses, you will want to familiarize yourself with the information available at the links below. If you have questions, please contact your advisor or the Center for Online Learning.


Your first step is to complete the CCV online application.


If you’ve attended college prior to applying to CCV, please arrange to have official copies of all previous transcripts to CCV’s registrar:

Previous transcripts will help to determine which of the four skills assessments you’ll be required to complete for enrollment in CCV classes, and inform which classes you will need to take to earn your Associates Degree at CCV.

Skill Assessments

CCV uses a simple process to help you choose the best courses to start your college experience. Before you enroll in college courses, please schedule and complete the free Accuplacer assessment to take a snapshot of your academic skills.

These tools will help to inform or direct you to a starting point in your academic career at CCV. You will also find a brief self- assessment to gauge readiness for the online classroom.

Financial Aid
