Application tips
  • Waitwhy didnt it add up to 45 credits?
  • AP III wasnt completed so
  • 45 total possible credits
  • minus 4 credits of AP III not completed
  • Equals 41 credits that can be used toward
    application

43
Application tips
  • OKso, what if I took FN 225 but didnt like my
    grade and plan to retake it. Do I have to put it
    on my application?
  • Nope. As long as you meet the minimum application
    requirements, you can leave the course off of
    your application.

44
Application tips
  • I think that I filled it out right, but
  • When you submit your application, Patty will
    review it and make any corrections.
  • Many times students end up with more points after
    Patty reviews their application.
  • When you received your points letter in the mail,
    you will have time to ask her questions.

45
Application tips
  • Can anyone review my application before I turn it
    in?
  • Find a detail-oriented friend to get a fresh set
    of eyes on your application.
  • CCC faculty staff are unable to review
    applications for completeness or complete it with
    you. We can answer specific questions.

46
Application tips
  • I submitted official transcript previously, do I
    need to submit another copy?
  • We strongly encourage that you do.
