Transferring to CGC?

    Perspective students planning to transfer to CGC from another college or university should:

  • Create a student account online and get a Maricopa Enterprise ID (MEID)
    • Login to your student account and Apply for Admissions to Chandler-Gilbert Community College
    • Submit proof of identity online or in-person with CGC's Admissions and Records Department
    • Update residency information with CGC's Admissions and Records Department (this will be used for tuition calculations) 
  • Bring your unofficial transcripts with you when seeing an advisor.  This allows an advisor to complete an unofficial transcript evaluation or provide course overrides.
  • Send official transcripts directly from each previous institution to CGC Admissions and Records office.  Hand carried transcripts (even if unopened and sealed) will be considered unofficial.
  • Take Writing, Reading, and/or Math placement test(s) if you have not successfully completed an English/Composition, Reading, or Mathematics course at a previous institution.

QLess System

 
QLess is the virtual queue management system used by CGCC that allows students to wait in a virtual line rather than a physical one. By providing your mobile phone number, a student will receive a text alert providing information of their place in line and when they are ready to be served.
