About the Book

A Student Handbook with simple, easy, and practical information to help anyone navigate the complicated process of becoming a community college student. While California Community Colleges (CCC), are expected to serve the community needs, many new students face most of their challenges during the enrollment or registration process. However, not a single book has ever been published before to guide students to navigate through the various steps to enroll at a CCC. Other challenges new students face is their inability to understand the common language, which college employees use on a regular basis and expect new students to understand the terminology. Therefore, each section of this handbook begins with a section of Useful Words, to help potential students familiarize themselves with the words they will be expected to use while in college. This handbook also includes illustrations and videos for those who are visual learners.
