  1. The student must meet the high school curricular requirements for admission.
  2. The student must have a grade point average high enough to meet CNC’s retention standards of a 1.7 cumulative grade point average for the first 30 credit hours and a 2.0 cumulative grade point average for all hours beyond 30.

Audit Students

A student may enroll in a credit course as an audit student on a non-credit basis with the permission of the instructor teaching the course. Enrollment is done in the normal manner with the enrollment indication that it will be an “audit.” Audit students are not held responsible for the work/exams expected of regular students and receive no grade or credit for the course.

Elder Eligibility

  • Applicant must be 55 years of age or older
  • Complete and submit CNC admission application, and other admissions forms

Elders will be able to enroll in all courses but will not receive college credit (unless they chose to do so). Elders who do not plan to receive credit will be considered an audit student. Audit students are not required to take any assessment or class tests.

Concurrent Student

A high school junior or senior may be enrolled in collegiate level courses provided she or he meets both the admissions and curricular requirements set by OSRHE. Concurrent students must be able to satisfy all curricular requirements for graduation from high school (including curricular requirements for college admission) no later than the spring semester of their senior year. All concurrent students are required to submit an official high school transcript and ACT scores along with a signed application.

  2. The Director of Student Services will consider the petition and a judgment shall be made as to the appropriateness of admission or non-admission.

Home Study or Non-Recognized Accredited or Unaccredited High Schools
