If you enroll in courses with ASCD, there are TWO STEPS to the enrollment process. You will first need to sign up with CCC for your Tuition Credit. Secondly, you will need to log on to the ASCD website link in order to sign up and pay for the course.  NOTE: If you have already signed up and paid for an ASCD course through ASCD, then your next step would be to register and enroll for college credit with CCC.

Credit Limits

CCC’s diverse Learning Formats are designed to be flexible according to your needs and schedule; however, it is important for CCC to maintain the integrity of our educational offerings by limiting the number of enrollment credits per semester.  CCC’s specific guidelines regarding the number of enrollment credits allowed per semester is a maximum of 15 credits during the Fall and Spring semesters.  The limit is 18 Credits during the Summer (or Off-Track) Semester. To request an exception to the credit limit requirement, send a written request and reason to the following address: Admin@CollegeCreditConnection.com. Please list the courses you want to take, the dates, credit value, and rationale for the request. 

The learner will be credited in the semester for which the learner has COMPLETED the course. (Please note that for online courses, the date in which the course grade is posted will become the new End Date for that class.  Therefore, students should plan to submit all completed course work and requirements to CCC a minimum of three weeks before the end of a given semester in order to have their grade posted for that semester.)
