Enrollment Steps

To get started you'll need:

  • Your Social Security number.

  • An email address that we can use to contact you.

  • Name and address of the high school you have attended.

  • Name and address of any colleges you have attended.

    Start Your Application

You can order your high school transcript at parchment.com or your GED transcripts at ged.ky.gov. Don’t forget to send transcripts for all previously attended non-KCTCS colleges, for example, any dual credit classes you may have taken in high school.

In order to accommodate prospective students who cannot take a placement test, ACTC will use a cumulative high school GPA for placement through Summer 2022, as long as your high school graduation date is within the past five years. High school GPA placement is based on the unweighted cumulative GPA recorded at the end of the most recent term completed.

If you have not met the high school GPA requirement, or your high school graduation date is greater than five years ago, you may need to submit additional test scores. 

Visit with the Admissions/Records office closest to you to complete your Admissions file and be assigned an advisor.

The first step in applying for financial aid is completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, you'll hear it called FAFSA. 

To complete the FAFSA you will need:

  • Your Social Security Number
  • Your Alien Registration Number (if you are not a U.S. citizen)
  • Your federal income tax returns, W-2s, and other records of money earned. (Note: You may be able to transfer your federal tax return information into your FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.)
  • Bank statements and records of investments (if applicable)
    Records of untaxed income (if applicable)
  • An FSA ID to sign electronically
    If you are a dependent student, then you will also need most of the above information for your parent(s).

If you are a dependent student, then you will also need most of the above information for your parent(s).

Meet with your program advisor or visit with the Advising Center on any campus and have your schedule made.
Payment of tuition is due the day prior to classes beginning. If you are not eligible to receive financial aid or you do not receive enough aid to cover your tuition balance, you can pay tuition fees at the Business Office window at your local campus or online by logging into your Student Self Service.
