New and Continuing Student Registration in Full Swing

Students at their ComputersSummer is the time to register for fall classes. Whether you are a new student (welcome!) or a continuing student, you want to be sure you are scheduling your fall courses. Seats fill up as the semester approaches, and registering now provides you with the most options. We know the registration system can sometimes be confusing, so check out our registration tutorial videos for a refresher.
Resources for Student Success — New Student Orientation
If you’re a new student, you will soon be able to register for your orientation for the College. Packed with information about all of the student services and resources we offer, your orientation includes a brief campus tour and an opportunity to meet other students.
New students, or continuing students who did not attend orientation previously, can take a look at the online orientation, which is found on the MyCCP homepage under New Student Resources.
Registering for classes is only a small part of what you need to get started on a successful CCP journey, and your orientation will cover topics ranging from managing college costs, to academic plans and pathways, making payments and learning resources. The online orientation doesn't need to be completed in one setting, so you can get informed on your own schedule.
Access Our Student Services from Wherever You Are
Did you know CCP has an entire website dedicated to accessing student resources virtually? The Virtual Student Resource Center is a one-stop website with access to academic support, financial services, health, counseling and basic needs support, student centers and resource offices, records and registration, and student activities and organizations. Whether you will be on campus every day or are taking classes online, CCP's services are only a click away.
