In-person student services available without an appointment

Our college will offer students a brief window to apply for admission, register for classes, get academic advice, meet with a financial aid specialist, or pay for a parking pass or Orca card in person at the Broadway Edison building.

Staff will be on site to help students from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 30, April 1, April 6, and April 8. You won’t need to make an appointment, but we anticipate longer wait times. Bring rain gear and warm clothes.

If you haven't activated your ctcLink account, please do so ahead of your visit. Also, remember that everyone entering our building must fill out this form before arriving and after leaving. Students and staff will need to maintain a safe social distance and wear a well-fitted face covering. If you don’t have one, we will provide one for you. Please enter the building using the marked entrance on Broadway.

We appreciate your patience and grace with college staff. We're excited to see you (safely!), answer your questions, and help you prepare for spring quarter.
