Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Grossmont College Student Services Building (10) will be open to students and the public for safety and sanitary purposes on a limited basis during normal business hours. If you have any questions, contact us!
We have limited ability to respond to student inquiries so it may take time.  However, our Admissions & Records COVID-19 FAQ is available for you here to answer some of your questions.  We will respond to emails as soon as we can, which may be 3-5 business days. We thank you for your patience.






You do not need to apply for multiple terms.  Your application is valid for one academic year. (e.g. if you applied for Fall 2019, you do not need to apply for Spring 2020). If you previously applied through CCCApply, you will need to create a new user name and password for Open CCC Apply. Your old user name and password will not be valid in the new system.
