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.
