Enrollment Steps



Before being able to apply to the college students will need to complete the North Carolina Residency Determination Service at https://ncresidency.cfnc.org/residencyInfo/ . After completing this step, students can submit their application online using the link below or by visiting the Office of Admissions at any of our campus locations:


Request official copies of the following documents to be sent to CPCC Records

  • High school transcript
  • Joint Service Transcripts or Community College of the Air Force Transcripts
  • Official transcripts from all previously attended colleges, universities, or non-college degree schools
    • Please note, all transcripts must be turned in and evaluated for credit before the college can certify enrollment to the Department of Veterans Affairs

Have these transcripts mailed to CPCC’s Student Records or bring them in sealed envelopes to the Student Records office. Bring a Member 4 or Service-2 copy of your DD214 to Student Records office to be granted additional credits.

**Military transcripts do not need to be in a sealed envelope like college transcripts. We would need the Member 4 copy of DD214. The request for evaluation is automatically completed when transcripts are submitted to the Student Records Department.**

Financial Aid and Veteran Education Benefits

Complete and submit the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov and contact the office of Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs to determine their eligibility for federal financial assistance. The Veterans Affairs Education Benefits does not determine the student's eligibility for VA benefits, this is done so by contacting the VA for questions in regards to GI Bill / VA Education Benefits at 1.888.442.4551.

Complete the related steps to VA education benefits or Federal Financial aid.
