Seven easy steps to CCTC!



STEP 1: Application Process

Complete an application on CCTC’s website at http://www.cctech.edu. Applications apply only to the term for which they are completed.

Official Transcripts

Request an official final high school or GED transcript be sent to Student Records if you wish to be considered for federal financial aid or if you are in a Health Sciences or Early Childhood program. If you have been home schooled, you must request a final transcript from the home school association or meet the requirements for the state in which the homeschool is located.

If applicable, request official college transcripts to be sent to Student Records. Official transcripts may be delivered by mail, electronically, or in person. If delivered in person the transcript must be in a sealed envelope. If delivered electronically, transcripts must come directly from the academic institution.

STEP 2: Registration and Orientation

STEP 3: Financial Aid and Payment Information

Apply for financial aid online at www.fafsa.gov.

If you have questions regarding your FAFSA, you may contact Financial Aid at (803)778-7850 or finaid@cctech.edu. Students who may be eligible for Veterans’ Affairs benefits may contact CCTC’s Veterans’ Resource Center at (803)778-7883.

To receive financial aid, high school transcripts must be provided from a public, private, home school or GED program in accordance with the South Carolina Law on Education, Title 59, Chapter 65.

Should you need to make a tuition payment, you may pay in person at the cashier located at Main Campus or Outreach Campuses, online through myCCTC, by mailing a check to the cashier, or by phone using a credit card.

STEP 4: Book Purchase

Purchase your books on Main Campus in the Central Carolina Bookstore located in Building M100 in the Student Center or Building K1100 at the Kershaw County Campus. Textbook requirements are posted online at: http://bookstore.cctech.edu and books may be purchased online as well. Book prices can also be found on myCCTC on the Financial Services Page, under Bookstore Price Search.

STEP 5: Student ID and Parking

If you need to visit the College’s campus to access services such as the CCTC Library, Testing Services, computer labs, etc., you will need a College ID. You will also need to register your vehicle. The Security Office is located in Building M100/Room M117. Security Office hours change from semester to semester and are posted outside the Security Office. A College ID and parking decal can also be obtained at the Kershaw County and F.E. Dubose Campuses. Parking decals and ID validations for the semester may be obtained at the Lee County Site.
