At City Colleges of Chicago (CCC), we are committed to providing our students a broad range of educational opportunities and services to help them achieve their education and career goals. We serve a highly diverse student population, including full-time, part-time, transfer, disabled, under-represented, military veteran, and international students.

CREDIT     ​                         

Students working towards a degree or certificate should 
fill out an onlin​e application for admissions. Once your application has been processed, you will receive an acceptance letter that includes your Student ID number.

Once you have been admitted, you will need to attend the New Student Orientation. For a complete overview of the registration process, including information about taking the placement exam, residency requirements, advising, and registration, download our New Student Registration checklist [PDF].          


Students submitting transcripts from colleges or universities can submit official transcripts to the appropriate Registrar’s Office where the student intends to register and/or request a transcript evaluation to receive transfer credit.  Please note, official transcripts are required to receive transfer credit.  Students transferring credit to City Colleges of Chicago are required to submit official college transcripts reflecting all college credits earned at other regionally accredited institutions previously attended.  
Note: unofficial transcripts may be submitted to complete the admission process, but they will not be evaluated for transfer credits and official transcripts will still be required for future enrollment and transfer credit evaluation.  


City Colleges of Chicago offers free college-level classes to high school students through our Dual Enrollment and Dual Credit* programs. These programs help students reduce the amount of time and money needed to complete two- and four-year degrees.

To start, fill out an online app​lication​ for admissions. Next, download the Early College Registration checklist [PDF] and follow the steps to complete the registration process.​  

*Students interested in the Dual Credit program should speak with their high school representative to learn more.



We want to ensure that students have clear pathways to accomplish their goals. For students who are looking to get a job, we will expand the bridge options into basic and advanced certificates. For those students, we believe that we will need to have at least some on-ramps into the College-to-Careers initiative. The credentials in this program will contribute to students’ career pathways by allowing them to count classes taken towards additional education. City Colleges of Chicago offers tuition free GED, English as a Second Language (ESL), Adult Basic Education (ABE), and U.S. Citizenship preparation classes. To register, visit the Adult Education Department​ at the college of your choice or call 773-COLLEGE.

For a complete overview of the Adult Education registration process, download our Adult Education Registration checklist​ [PDF].​​​​
