Step One - Apply for Admission

Applying for admissions to Centralia College is as simple as visiting the Enrollment Services Office (second floor of the TransAlta Commons on the main campus or Centralia College East in Morton) or completing an online admission form. There is no cost to apply.

Step Two - Arrange Funding

After submitting your application, you'll want to start applying for financial aid right away. CC's Financial Aid Office can help. Apply by March 1 for maximum availability.

Step Three - Submit Placement & Transcripts

Proper placement in English and math is determined by a college placement test. Centralia College uses the Accuplacer Next Generation test, but you may also submit previous college transcripts or Smarter Balanced test scores. Visit the Testing Center to arrange for a placement test.

If you would like credits earned at any other college considered for transfer to Centralia College, you must send official transcripts to Enrollment Services. You also must complete and submit your Application for Credit Evaluation to Enrollment Services. Credit evaluation will not be processed until your official transcript(s) and Application for Credit Evaluation are received.

Centralia College grants credits to students who have earned an appropriate score on the International Baccalaureate (IB) Tests in the subject areas listed on the International Baccalaureate (IB) Course Equivalency Guide (pdf).
