• Frequently Asked Questions

  • What do I need to make an appointment to see an advisor for?

    Advising Services that require an appointment include: Academic probation & suspension; TAA funding paperwork; Financial Aid extension or Unusual Enrollment educational plans; and long-term educational plans (three or more terms).

    If you are required to complete an educational plan for a Extension of Financial Aid or Unusual Enrollment, you must first have official transcripts from all previously attended colleges and universities evaluated before you meet with an academic advisor. All credits may not be used towards your degree program, however, you are still required to have your transcripts evaluated before you schedule an appointment with an advisor.

    To have your transcripts evaluated:

    1. Contact your previous schools and request official transcripts be sent to CCC.
      Clackamas Community College
      c/o Graduation Services
      19600 Molalla Ave.
      Oregon City, OR 97045
    2. When CCC receives your transcripts, Graduation Services will email your myClackamas student account notifying you we have received your transcripts. You must reply to this email to have your transcripts evaluated. Once you have replied to the email, we will begin the evaluation of your transcripts.
    3. When the evaluation process of your transcripts is complete, we will email your myClackamas account once again to notify you of the results of your evaluation. At this time, you may schedule an appointment with an Academic Advisor.

     To schedule an appointment call: 503-594-3475 or email at advising@clackamas.edu.

    Why won't the system let me register? (I have a hold on my account and I can’t register for classes)
    If you are not able to register for your CCC classes, you may have a hold on your account prohibiting your registration. This may be due to your current academic standing, or you may have an outstanding balance due to the college. If you have an academic standing hold on your account, please see our Academic Standing information page for steps to remove your hold. If you are unsure of why you cannot register, please contact Enrollment Services at 503-594-6100.
    How do I contact and/or find my instructor?
    You can find your instructor information by viewing your class schedule on your myClackamas account. Clink on the link for the class on your schedule and it will provide you with the instructors email information. If you need additional contact information for an instructor, you can also search on our college directory through our website.
    Am I ready/how do I graduate?
    If you think you are ready or close to graduation, you can print out a copy of your academic evaluation and drop in to meet with an advisor to check your progress. You must complete an application to be able to graduate called a Petition for Graduation. Your petition should be turned in at least two terms before the term you would like to graduate from Clackamas Community College. You can also complete a Petition for Graduation through your myClackamas account by logging in and clicking on "Account Information" then "Petition for Graduation".
    What is an Academic Evaluation?
    An academic evaluation shows a student what classes are required to complete a certain degree, which courses the student has completed that will apply towards that degree, and what classes they have left to complete the degree selected. A student can print out an academic evaluation for any of the certificate or degree programs offered at CCC. Students who come in to see an advisor should come prepared with a print out of the academic evaluation of the degree they are hoping to receive. For information about how to print out your academic evaluation, please see our Registration Information page.
