The Open Door
In keeping with its philosophy of putting postsecondary education within the reach of all citizens, Chesapeake College has adopted an Open Door admissions policy. Regular admission will be granted to any student.
Applications for admission may be obtained from the following sources:
- The Office of Admissions
- The Office of Registration
- The College's Semester Schedule of Classes
- Online (Admission form - PDF)
Students who have questions with regard to the admissions process or who would like to schedule a visit to the College should contact the Office of Admissions. Students should take the following steps to complete the application process:
- Submit a college application to the Office of Admissions before the semester when admission is desired.
Applicants need to request that copies of the following official documents be forwarded to the Office of Registration and Records:
- High school graduates: submit an official copy of your secondary school transcript.
- General Equivalency Diploma (GED) students: request that a copy of your test results be mailed from the appropriate State Department of Education.
- Students who have attended other colleges: forward an official transcript from each college attended to the Office of Registration, Attn.: Registrar. (Note: Transfer credits will not be posted on the student's academic record until 15 credits have been earned at Chesapeake.)
Please also forward ACT, SAT, AP and CLEP scores to the College's Office of Registration and Records.
- Take the College's Academic Skills Assessment (ASA) at the Testing Center. This test helps academic advisors place students in courses that are appropriate to the student's academic and career goals. For additional information, please contact the Office of Student Services or the Testing Center.
- Meet with an academic advisor to discuss career options and course scheduling by calling the Office of Student Services.
NOTE: Additional admissions requirements and procedures may apply to programs in Allied Health fields. See specific program pages in the Catalog for details.
NOTE: Submission of incomplete or false information by the student may be cause for denial of admission or dismissal from Chesapeake College.
