Congratulations on your acceptance!

We want to make enrolling at SUNY Corning Community College as easy as possible. So we've outlined your next steps below. You might want to make a note of this web page, so you can find it again. We are also very happy to meet with you and help you as much as we can.

Below are links to information and resources to assist you with the enrollment process. If you have questions, please call (607.962.9151) or email

  1. COLLEGE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (CID). Refer to your acceptance letter for this important number. You will need it to identify yourself for testing, financial aid, registering for courses, and more.

  2. TRANSFER CREDITS If you are seeking credit for prior college courses, we will need your official transcripts sent from the colleges you previously attended. Transcripts should be mailed to SUNY CCC Office of Admissions, 1 Academic Dr., Corning, NY 14830. Once an official transcript has been received, it will be evaluated for transfer credit. If you don't hear from us, please call us. 

  3. PLACEMENT TEST After reviewing your high school transcripts and any college credits, we may need you to take a placement test. If you are required to take a placement test, information on this placement page will be helpful. You will need to bring photo identification with you to this test.

  4. LIVE ON CAMPUS We encourage you to consider living on campus. The process starts with a tour of the residence hall, which boasts some of the biggest rooms in the SUNY system. Living on-campus offers independence, convenience, and gives you choices that you won't have if you spend your time commuting. Details are here.

  5. REGISTER FOR CLASSES  After you have completed any placement testing and had all previous college credit evaluated for transfer credit, schedule an appointment to register for classes on the Spencer Hill campus or at the Elmira Center. If you have any questions, call the Office of Admissions at 607.962.9151.

  6. APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID Find more information about paying for college and scholarships. Make sure you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at https://fafsa.gov. Our federal code is 002863. If you are a New York State resident, remember to also do the Tuition Assistance Plan (TAP) at Higher Education Services Corporation. Our NYS code is 2042.

  7. SUBMIT YOUR PRE-ENROLLMENT HEALTH FORM. All students taking six or more credit hours are required to complete a Pre-Enrollment Health Form regardless of age due to mandatory meningitis education. While the meningitis vaccine remains optional, the education is required. Further, if you are born after 12/31/1956 you are required to prove that you are not susceptible to Measles, Mumps, and Rubella by providing a complete and accurate vaccination record, doctor documented illness for measles and mumps only, or by positive serological testing.

  8. REGISTER YOUR VEHICLE You can register your vehicle online.

  9. Visit MYCCC This is our College internal website. Sign in to your personalized account using your username and temporary password. If you do not have that information, call 607-962-9151. Sign into your college email, visit MyBanner/Student & Financial Aid and more.

  10. SIGN UP FOR ELLUCIAN GO If you have a smartphone/mobile device, you can get quick access to some of your information in MyCCC (class schedule, events, campus contact information, etc.) through this app:           iPhone app                  Android app

  11. NEW YORK STATE RESIDENTS If you have been a New York State resident for at least ONE year, you will need to complete a Certificate of Residency form within 30 days of your first class. These are mailed to each student after they have registered for classes or can be picked up in the Enrollment Advisement Center in the Commons. This document must be notarized, and the requirements for each county are different, so please check the back of the form for your specific county or call 607-962-9875 with any questions.

  12. CLASS SCHEDULE and TEXTBOOKS Confirm the location of all your classes (on campus, off campus, online). You can view this in MyCCC under the STUDENT tab, Class Schedule. To find out what textbooks you will need, go to MyBanner > Student & Financial Aid > Registration > Student Detail Schedule. It will show you the ISBN number, copyright, edition, etc.

  13. COLLEGE PHOTO ID This may be obtained from the Student Life Office in the Commons on the Spencer Hill campus or at the Greeter Desk in Elmira at the Academic Workforce Development Center, 318 Madison Avenue. Please have photo ID with you.

  14. SIGN UP FOR THE BARON BASH ORIENTATION Each semester the incoming students have a special orientation event with special speakers, giveaways, and more. Bring your schedule with you, and we'll show you where your classes are.
