Once you have been admitted you will receive your acceptance letter. The letter will include a phone number to call to make an appointment for assessment testing, advising, and registration.

Students may work toward a general equivalency diploma (GED) while taking Corning Community College classes; however, CCC does not offer a GED program.
Non-graduates (high school) who are accepted at CCC through Ability-to-Benefit testing may pursue their high school equivalency diploma by successfully completing 24 credit hours of specific college coursework. Students may then request that a Corning Community College transcript be sent to the State Education Department in Albany where a GED is issued.
It is imperative that high school juniors considering early admission are academically and socially prepared for the challenges of college. Students must discuss their intent with their high school guidance counselor, receive written approval from the guidance counselor or high school principal, and receive satisfactory scores on ability-to-benefit testing. There is a formal process for students to be considered. Every early application is reviewed by the Director of Admissions who makes the final admission decision.
High school students who enroll at CCC while completing requirements for their high school diploma are not eligible for any federal aid, including student loans. They may apply for New York State TAP awards if they enroll full-time and successfully complete ability-to-benefit testing.
Corning Community College will accept most transfer credits with a grade of C or higher if they fit into the program of study in which you plan to enroll while at CCC. Previous credit must have been granted at an accredited degree-granting institution.
Colleges typically accept CCC credits provided the credits fit into your intended program of study and you receive the minimum acceptable grade for the institution. Keep in mind every college has its own requirements and the final decision on transfer credit acceptance is with the institution to which you transfer.
If you have been accepted for the fall semester, you may be eligible for financial aid for the previous summer session (i.e. If you are accepted for Fall 2012, you may be eligible for Summer 2012 financial aid.).
