- The completion of a college placement test designed by the community college district that indicates the student is at the appropriate college level for the course.
- A composite score of 93 or more on the Preliminary Scholarship Aptitude Test (PSAT)

Parent signature is required on the Special Registration Form and placement tests may be required. Academic departments may have additional requirements.
Students under age 16 should contact the Early Outreach Programs office. To schedule an appointment, Call 480.857.5188.
Q - What do I do if I have been classified as out-of-state for tuition purposes?
Arizona state law requires a student document proof of lawful presence in the United States to be considered for in-state tuition. Until you submit a Declaration of Citizenship or Status Form and document lawful presence to the college, we are required to charge out-of-state tuition prices. Acceptable documents include a birth certificate, an Arizona driver license or ID card issued after 1996, and official immigration papers. Students who successfully complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will not need to show additional proof of citizenship. Upon receipt of your documents, your residency status will be reviewed. Students must meet all residency requirements to qualify for in-state tuition. Students may be required to submit additional documents.
Q - What is the Western Undergraduate Exchange Program (WUE)?
WUE allows students who reside in western states and meet the eligibility requirements to pay 150% percent of the resident tuition plus fees. To request WUE classification, a student must complete a WUE Request Form with the Admissions & Records Office prior to the official start date of his/her first term of enrollment. Once admitted as a WUE student, you may not petition for in-state residency at CGCC.
Q - Do I need transcripts sent to CGCC to register in classes?
Transcripts from other schools are not mandatory for course registration; however, it is recommended you bring an unofficial transcript with you when seeking advisement on what classes you need to take to complete degree requirements. Also, a transcript would indicate if you completed a course at another college that would be a prerequisite for a class that you plan to take at CGCC.
If you are pursuing a degree at CGCC and would like coursework evaluated for transfer credit, you must request your prior institution send an official transcript directly to the Admissions and Records Office at CGCC. Hand carried transcripts will not be accepted. Once you have verified your transcript has been received, complete an Evaluation of Prior College Credit form with the Admissions & Records Office. Evaluations are completed in approximately six weeks. For more information on credit for prior learning, please see the college catalog.
Q - How do I get my grades?
CGCC does not mail or fax grades to students. To view your grades, log in to your Student Center at my.maricopa.edu. Select the “Grades” link.
Q - How can I get a letter verifying my enrollment?
You may request an enrollment verification letter from the Admissions & Records Office at the Pecos Campus or Student Services at the Williams Campus. Simply complete a request form and pick up your letter on the next work day.
