Getting started with Coconino Community College is easier than you think. The following steps will guide you to becoming a Coconino Community College student.
Apply for Admission
Students need only complete an application if they have not been admitted to Coconino Community College or have not taken classes within the past 3 years.
The College is open to any person seeking enrollment. There is no cost to apply using one of the three types of applications that best describes you this semester:
If you have completed high school before starting classes at Coconino Community College, or 18 or older, or have a GED select the Credit Application. If you are an international student, please see Registration and Enrollment Services for the application process.
For those taking non-credit courses for personal enrichment, please select the Non-Credit Application. This is not for degree or certificate completion.
Special Admission – Concurrent High School Enrollment Form
For those who are still in high school while taking Coconino Community College classes, please see Registration and Enrollment Services or your advisor for a paper application.
Residency Requirements & Proposition 300 Requirements
Documentation for both Arizona residency and US citizenship MUST be provided to the Registration and Enrollment Services Office by all students who wish to apply for in-state tuition status. Apache and Greenlee county residents: complete this affidavit [Will send later] and submit to Enrollment Services each semester.
US citizenship and Arizona residency are two separate requirements. Being a US citizen does not indicate that your Arizona residency status for tuition purposes is fulfilled. Coconino Community College requires clear and convincing evidence to support any claims for Arizona residency status, in addition to proof of US citizenship.
For full explanation of Proposition 300 and Arizona Residency laws and lists of acceptable documentation see the individual links for each.
