Apply for College

​Applying for admission to the City Colleges of Chicago is easy. Apply now by clicking the link below, or for more information visit the Admissions Office at the college of your choice. 

Admissions is a two step process, as follows. 

Step 1: Apply Online (New Students Only)

Complete an online admissions application. If you have a Social Security Number (SSN), please enter it on your application. Your SSN enables us to quickly determine if you have an existing record in our database. We will keep your SSN confidential and will not share it. You can complete an online application even if you do not have an SSN or if you prefer not to enter it. 

Once your application is accepted, you will be assigned a student ID number which you will use to complete the admissions process

Step 2: Visit the College of Your Choice

After you complete your online admissions application, please visit your college to continue the admissions process, including verification of your identity and residency. Since tuition rates differ depending upon your residency, we require proof of residency using one of the following documents: 

  • Valid driver's license or State-issued ID card
  • Voter's registration card
  • Utility bill: gas, light, or home phone (cell phone bills are not accepted)
  • Current apartment lease
  • Mexican Consular ID card
  • Official ISIR
