Verify Your Identity
Students are required to upload a valid government-issued photo ID in our secure document portal. (We won’t judge your picture, promise!) For military and veterans, we request a copy of the Joint Services Transcript in lieu of requiring a photo ID. Air Force applicants are required to submit a valid government-issued photo ID to firstname.lastname@example.org or an official CCAF transcript.
Tour the Ecampus
Log into the ecampus, select the down arrow beside your name in the page header, and click Edit Profile to review and confirm that your personal information is correct. While you’re there, get familiar with the various areas of the ecampus. It may not include a fancy stadium or manicured lawns, but that’s just one way we put valuable resources back into YOU, our students.
Determine Payment Options
Affordability should never be an obstacle to a college degree. So we provide several flexible options that include Self-Payment, Veterans Benefits, Military Tuition Assistance, and more. Please note that Federal Student Aid is not available for non-degree seeking students. Details can be found within your ecampus and are also located on our website.

Review Books/Course Materials
Coincidence that ebooks rhymes with “free books?” We think not. Yes, all ebooks and textbooks are provided to credit-seeking undergraduate students at no cost – thanks to the University’s undergraduate book grant. Some programs will have additional course material costs not covered by this grant. The materials needed can be viewed within the Academic Plan. Simply click on the course title and select the Course Materials block under the course’s description to see what materials are needed.
Early bird catches the worm and you and your work ethic are no strangers to the wee hours. That’s why the classroom opens at 6 a.m., ET. You must log into each classroom at least once the first week and complete the introductory forum post. This post must contain at least 250 words and be submitted by 11:59 p.m., ET on Sunday. If you do not complete this requirement during week one by the noted specifications, you will be automatically dropped from the course.
