Admissions Policies and Procedures

In keeping with the philosophy that the capabilities of each individual should be developed, Coastal Alabama Community College operates under an “open door” admissions policy. However, certain programs have specific program entry requirements. These program requirements are listed in the Programs of Study section. This policy grants admission to entering freshmen, transfer students, transient students, audit students, accelerated high school students, as well as any students seeking readmission. All students must provide one primary form of identification for admission to Alabama community colleges. Act No. 91-584 passed by the Alabama State Legislature requires that all males between the ages of 18 and 26 register with the Selective Service prior to enrolling in any state institution of higher education.

Coastal Alabama Community College refrains from high-pressure recruitment tactics such as making multiple unsolicited contacts (3 or more), including contacts by phone, email, or in-person, or engage in same-day recruitment and registration for the purpose of securing service member enrollment. 

Eligible Service members are encouraged to receive approval from an Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within the Military Service prior to enrolling at Coastal Alabama Community College.
