Returning CC Student

Returning to CC? We are excited to have you with us again.

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.

Quick and Easy Steps to get started:

Has it been more than 10 years since you last took a course with CC? If so, please click Apply Now as you will need to re-apply to Cerro Coso Community College.

If it has been less than 10 years, please follow these easy steps to access your CC account:

  • Visit
  • Click on "Services & Resources"
  • Click “InsideCC" on the top right corner of this page
  • If you know your student email address and password, enter the information for logging in.
  • If you do not know your student email address and/or password, click the “Forgot Password” option
    • When you navigate to the Password Manager page, click “Forgot Password” under the second box.
    • Enter your last name, the last four digits of your social security number, and your date of birth.
    • Answer your security question. Questions will vary from student to student.
    • Then create and confirm a new college password and keep it in a safe place. You will also be able to view your student ID and student email address from this page.
  • With your student email address and new password, you will be able to log into InsideCC!

** What happens if I do not remember my security question or I have locked myself out of my account?

  • You can email the Admissions & Records Department requesting a pin reset; we will need a copy of a photo ID such as a driver's license or state ID before we can reset your pin.
