Students interested in taking a class at Capital Community College as a Non-Degree student

If you are interested in taking a class or two at Capital Community College to transfer back to your home institution please read the following;

  1. Complete the application for admission.
  2. Pay the $20 application fee. If you have already paid the fee at one of the 12 Community Colleges in Connecticut, you do not have to pay the application fee again.
  3. If you wish to take a course that has a pre-requisite, you will need to fill out the Pre-requisite Waiver Form. The Pre-requisite Waiver Form can be found under the Forms tab above. The Pre-requisite Waiver Form will explain the process. The form and a student copy of your college transcript will need to be faxed to the Counseling Office. The Counseling Office will review your college transcript and remove the pre-requisite hold on the course if you are eligible to register for it.

Applicants must, however, have the appropriate background to achieve success in the course. They must submit an application using the non-degree code and must pay the $20 non-refundable application fee.

Individuals who do not intend to enroll in degree or certificate programs and who are not applying for financial aid may indicate non-degree on the application and need not submit a transcript.
