The following checklist offers step-by-step instruction on how to get started.
Step 1: Admit by completing an Admissions Application and requirements. If you've never attended Collin College or if you have not attended during the last two long semesters (16 weeks) or more, an application is necessary. You're welcome to apply online. The schedule of classes is also available online. If you have any questions, please contact the Admissions and Records Office.
Step 2: Provide proof of meningitis vaccination (if needed) and submit official transcripts.
Step 3: Assessment Testing, if needed. For testing information click here.
Step 4: Visit with an Academic Advisor to determine Degree Plans. Visit the Advising section of this site for complete information concerning Collin's Academic Advisors and the Advising process.
Step 5: Build your class schedule by selecting credit classes from e-schedule. The e-schedule can be accessed in the Academics section of this website or via CougarWeb. Determine convenient campus locations, class days/times, and obtain the class call number.
Step 6: Register through CougarWeb. Current students will sign on using their current CougarWeb username (which is the first part of their CougarMail email address, i.e. jsmith138). The password is the last six digits of the Campus Wide ID (CWID).
If you do not have your username and password, you may email CougarWeb@collin.edu. Requests should include the student's full legal name and date of birth.
Upon completion of the admissions process, new students to Collin will automatically get an email from the Admissions and Records Office that provides the following information: CougarWeb username; CougarWeb password; CougarMail address and Campus Wide ID (CWID).
The Need help? link on the CougarWeb login page will direct you to technical support.
Step 7: Pay for classes. Be sure to meet all payment deadlines. The Paying For College link to the left on this page will take you to more information concerning tuition and payment.
