College Connection: CMS High School students

College Connection is an early registration opportunity during the month of April for current CMS high school seniors. Please see our 2015 registration schedule. Between May and August, please follow the college enrollment steps.

Our program allows for a greater selection of classes to be able to tailor your college schedule around home and work. View our College Connection brochure or submit our form if you would like to be contacted about participating. 

In order to participate in College Connection please complete the following steps:

Step 1: Complete Admissions Application To CPCC
Within an hour, you should receive an email with your Student ID Number.  You will need that number when creating your CPCC login.

View a video on how to complete the admissions application.

Step 2: Create Your CPCC Login (Username And Password)
You will be assigned a username and must create a password to complete your CPCC login. This login is required to access your personal information such as financial aid documentation, academic records and student email account.  It is also required to log on to the computers at any CPCC campus.

Step 3: Set Up Your CPCC Student Email
CPCC provides an official email account to each student.  The CPCC Google email is our official means of communicating with students and is used by Financial Aid, the Cashiering Office, instructors, advisors, for campus alerts and much more.  Check your CPCC email every day.

Step 4: Complete FAFSA to begin the financial aid process, if needed. (School Code: 002915)  *This step takes several weeks to process so please proceed to the next step while waiting on your Financial Aid award response. You will not get an award letter until after your official high school transcript is received.

You can also complete our online scholarship application.

Step 5: Study For ACCUPLACER Placement Tests using the ACCUPLACER Practice Tests and Review Videos. Then take ACCUPLACER Placement Tests. The ACCUPLACER tests are now mandatory, but some students may qualify for a test waiver based on SAT/ACT test scores or high school GPA.

A recruiter will come to your school during the month of February or March to administer the test on-site. Please see your CDC or guidance counselor for more information. We will also offer Saturday testing twice during the month of March at a CPCC campus.

Step 6: Sign up for classes when we come to your high school for registration day (in April 2015).

Step 7: Submit high school transcripts once you have graduated.

Step 8: Pay for classes, or confirm that you have a Financial Aid award by the payment due date.

Step 9: Attend an orientation session during the summer before you begin your first semester at CPCC.
