Q. I got a letter from
Admissions telling me to come to CAPS.
Is that right?
You do need to come to CAPS, but only AFTER you have
Placement Tests. CAPS needs those scores
to ensure you will register for the correct courses.
Q. I don’t know what I want to
major in. Can you help me?
We can help with those choices in a number of ways, through both
listening to you talk about what you enjoy doing and through interest
inventories and personality tests.
Q. How can I make sure that the
classes I take at CCC will transfer to another school?
CAPS has a
complete listing of all articulated course equivalencies for the entire
