Continuing Students: If you are a continuing student, (registered in classes for the current term) DO NOT reapply for admission. You will be required to complete an update when for classes. Continuing students will receive an appointment to register for the next term as long as their update is complete. Appointments will be available via InsideCC a few weeks before registration starts.
New Students: You’re considered a new student if you’ve never taken classes at Cerro Coso Community College. New students, regardless of their educational background and goal, must apply for admission. If you need financial assistance, apply for financial aid - you’ll be given an opportunity to apply via the FAFSA website at the end of this application.
Returning Students: Returning students are those who have previously attended Cerro Coso Community College but have missed two or more semesters. Returning students must apply for admission.
High School Seniors: If you are a senior in High School and are currently taking classes at Cerro Coso College, and plan on continuing to take classes for the next semester at CC, you MUST reapply to Cerro Coso College as a “First Time College student” during the second half of your senior year. Select high school graduate even though you won't graduate for a few months.

California has created an application that will be used by all California Community Colleges. It is called CCC Apply. KCCD (Kern Community College District) is using this application beginning with the Summer/Fall 2016 enrollment. At that time, campus websites will direct students applying for summer and fall to the new application.
If you didn't get an email, you may have entered an incorrect email address into the application or the email could be in your email’s SPAM folder. You can go to the Application Lookup link at https://ssb-prod.ec.kccd.edu/cccapply/#/cccapply/lookup where you can enter your Last Name, Last 4 of your SSN and Date of Birth to get back to step 6 (see the question above for steps).
This may mean that you didn't finish your application or that there's a typo in your last name, SSN, or date of birth. You can contact Admissions and Records for more help.
CCCApply has a 24/7/365 student help desk.
