Immunization Requirements
Every full-time student (12 credits or more) and every full-time or part-time student in a health science program who is in contact with patients, must present a physician's certificate that such student has received specific immunizations.

Re-admission to the College
Students who had once applied to the College and enrolled, but are no longer “matriculated” due to:

  1. graduation from the College, or
  2. an unenrolled status for two consecutive years, can follow the standard application procedures for readmission. Re-applicants must check with the Admissions Office to determine whether or not they need to resubmit their high school and college transcripts. If a student is readmitted to the College or changes his/her degree or certificate program, the graduation requirements are those in effect on that date. Students who do not register for classes at the College after two consecutive semesters, exclusive of summer, will be required to see an advisor prior to registration

A student may apply for readmission to the college following a calendar year dismissal. The student will continue to be on probation and expected to raise his/her CGPA to Good Standing within one calendar year.

A student who elects to remain inactive for two consecutive semesters may apply for readmission under the Fresh Start Option.

Transfer of Science Credits
Students who are transferring in credits for science courses that do not fit the traditional four-credit format (3 credits lecture, 1 credit laboratory) may be permitted to take only the laboratory portion of a Cape Cod Community College science course that closely matches the transferred course. Refer to Course Descriptions for a description of classes and requirements – search for "Laboratory for Transfer Students."

Transfer to Cape Cod Community College
If you are transferring to Cape Cod Community College, you must submit official transcripts from all colleges and universities ever attended. Upon acceptance to the College, the Registrar's Office will conduct a transfer credit evaluation of previous college-level course work and notify students, in writing, of accepted transfer credit. Transfer of credits from another college to Cape Cod Community College is determined on an individual basis.
