CC Bound: Information for New Students

We're delighted to welcome you to the CC community, Class of 2027 and new transfer students! Whether you will be joining us in the Fall or Winter as a first-year student or a transfer, this website contains (almost) everything you need to know after you have finalized your college decision (Congratulations!) to the first day of classes.

We are currently getting everything updated in preparation for new students to arrive at CC! CC Bound will be updated with new information so be sure to check back frequently, in addition to reading your CC emails, so you have the most updated information about housing, advising, registration, new student orientation, etc. To get you started navigating this page and have a better idea of what to expect, visit Dates, Deadlines, & To Do Timelines and branch out from there.
