- Returning Students
Returning students are those who have previously attended Coastline Community College, but missed the most recent primary semester (Fall or Spring). You are considered a returning student regardless of whether you skipped one semester or several years, therefore you will need to reapply through CCC Apply.

3 Take Placement Test(s)
All new college students are required to take placement tests for both English and Math.
It is recommended that students schedule their placement testing (or submit proof of placement) prior to the end of their first semester of enrollment and no later than four weeks prior to enrolling in a Math or English course.
Visit the Assessment Center webpage to learn more about placement test requirements and substitution options.
