College Credit Now Application Process

Chemeketa students outside

Begin your college career today with CCN!

Welcome to College Credit Now (CCN) at Chemeketa. Signing up for a CCN course is a two-step process. All College Credit Now students must complete these steps, even if a student has already completed a non-CCN Chemeketa course.

Step 1-Admission Application:

All CCN students must be admitted through the on-line CCN admission application. By doing so, you will be coded with an appropriate program code that will allow you to register for a CCN course. Click here for online admission to CCN. If you have already completed the CCN admission application, go directly to Step 2 – Registration.

Once you have completed the application, you will receive an automated email with your username and Chemeketa “K” Number (ID Number). Save this information to log into your My Chemeketa account. To sign in to My Chemeketa for the first time, you will need to click on "Forgot your password?". You will be asked to provide your first name, last name, social security or Chemeketa "K" Number, and date of birth. Once you select the ‘Get Login Information’ button, an email will be sent to your email account on file with a URL address and a token that is good for 24 hours so you can set your new password.

TIP! Even though it is not required, using your social security number may make it easier to retrieve information from my.chemeketa.edu if you lose your username or password. If you didn't input your SSN, please call 503.399.5239 or 503.584.7349 and identify yourself as a College Credit Now student.

Placement Test  

If your CCN course requires a placement test, then you will need to go to a Chemeketa campus to take the COMPASS exam. Your K number and photo ID are required in order to test. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE YOUR K NUMBER AND PHOTO ID, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO TEST! Complete Step 1 above to obtain a Chemeketa K number. You need to do this at least one week prior to taking the Placement Test. If you gave your SSN when completing the CCN online admission application, you can check online for your K number through the http://my.chemeketa.edu, clicking on "Account", then clicking on "Account summary".Your K number will be located next to your name near the top of the window. If you have additional questions about your K number, please call MWEC staff at 503.399.5239.

Step 2- Registration:

You will need to request the CRN number and term code from your teacher to use when registering for a College Credit Now course. Registration and drop deadlines are listed in the registration deadlines calendar. If you are still not clear, please contact your teacher. Once you have the CRN number, log into your My Chemeketa account: then follow these steps:

  1. Click the Student tab
  2. Click on Registration & Schedule Menu
  3. Choose to Add/Drop classes
  4. Enter the current term
  5. Enter the CRN number given to you by your teacher
  6. Click Submit Changes
 
 

Cost and Payment

The cost for credit earned through CCN is $25 per student per year and students can take as many classes as are available to them at their school. This is a significantly reduced rate to the standard tuition/fees for regular CCC students (currently $96.00 per credit). The fee should be paid directly to the high school when registering for your first CCN class each year.

If a student is not able to participate due to limited resources, please contact the high school counselor/administrator to inquire about resources that may be available through the school.
