About Online Registration

The Office of Special Programs offers online registration through WebAdvisor for CCA Extension courses. (CCA currently uses WebAdvisor for student academic registration.) You do not need to create a WebAdvisor profile to register for any Extension classes or apply to CCA

Online registration requires either a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express) or an electronic check (e-check) as a method for payment. (E-checks authorize a direct debit to a personal checking account.)


All registrations are confirmed by email.

Delivery errors can occur with email. If you do not receive a confirmation, please contact the Office of Special Programs to confirm your registration.

Students who do not receive a confirmation are still liable for the tuition of CCA Extension courses for which they have registered; students must formally withdraw from a class in order to receive a refund (see refund policy).

See Additional Ways to Register (below) if you prefer to register by phone.
