Who is eligible?

To participate in the Community College Connection program you need to complete the Accuplacer exam or meet placement exemptions. 

The program is designed for:

  • Students who have applied to St. Cloud State and were referred to the Connection program
  • Graduating high school students who apply directly to the program without a referral
  • Students admitted to ARCC can change their major to the Connection program to apply for admission

Students who have previous college experience may not qualify for the Community College Connection program. If you have previous college experience, contact Admissions at Anoka-Ramsey Community College or St. Cloud State to explore alternative options for admission. Those who still want to be considered for the CCC Program will have their application considered on an individual basis.
