THE APPLICATION PROCESS
There are several ways to register for courses at Cayuga Community College.
REGISTERING AS A NEW FULL-TIME OR PART-TIME STUDENT — SEEKING A DEGREE
Whether you register as a full-time or part-time student, you must be matriculated into a degree program if you wish to be considered for financial aid. Complete and submit the Admissions Application. Please keep in mind that if you use the self-registration process, it is imperative that the credits you register for equal the equation for full or part time status. To be considered a full-time student you must be registered for a minimum of 12 credits during the semester. If you register for “late” start classes, please check with the Financial Aid Office or The Centers for Student Engagement and Academic Advisement to assure if it is line with the requirements for full-time status.
REGISTERING AS A NEW PART-TIME STUDENT — NOT SEEKING A DEGREE
Non-degree enrollment is available for students who wish to take courses but do not plan to pursue a degree at Cayuga. Non-degree students do not qualify for financial aid and are typically part-time students who enroll in no more than 12 credits per term.
Visit Non-Degree (Part-Time) Students for more information, or contact the Office of the Registrar.
REGISTERING AS A RETURNING FULL-TIME STUDENT
Returning full-time students register for courses following academic advisement from their assigned advisors. Returning part-time students are encouraged to consult with an academic advisor (if assigned) or a Student Engagement staff member. A period of advisement and registration is held each semester to give current students first choice of classes for the next sessions. See Academic Calendar.
If you are a former student and wish to pursue a degree program, you can apply for readmission using the Admissions Application and indicate you are a Re-Admit applicant when prompted. You can also speak with someone in the Centers for Student Engagement and Academic Advisement in Auburn or Fulton for help.
REGISTERING AS A RETURNING PART-TIME STUDENT
If you were a student in the prior semester and you wish to register as a part-time student you may do so with any one of the following processes. (If you utilized financial aid funds, please make sure you have consulted with the financial aid office prior to changing from full-time to part-time status)

ASSISTANCE WITH TUITION AND FEES
Some employers provide tuition assistance for their employees. Inquire through your employer’s human resources office. Your tuition may be deferred based on certain financial aid awards, such as TAP and Pell. Under special circumstances, outside agencies and companies providing tuition assistance to their employees may be billed at later dates. Deferred costs will be paid by the first aid disbursed to the student.
If you do not qualify for these types of aid, you must pay tuition and fees by the date shown on your bill.
