Deadlines

Important information, definitions, and an explanation of deadlines can be found at the definition section below.

Note:

CCC is a non-attendance taking institution. It is the sole responsibility of the student to drop or withdraw if they have no intention of attending class. Faculty will not drop/withdraw students.  Faculty will only enter no shows (NS), FTSE verification, and final grades. Registration will remove any student who is assigned an NS status by faculty from the roster. Students who are issued an NS status and/or do not drop by the 100% refund deadline are charged full tuition.
