The CCC Librarian, located at the Lone Tree campus, is happy to answer questions about finding, evaluating and using information-you make an appointment on the library website or call 928-226-4369. Here are some of the library services you can use:

Using the library saves you time: our resources connect you directly to peer reviewed articles, scholarly books, and other authoritative sources that are essential to college work. The CCC online library has tools to help you easily cite and organize trusted sources, find and narrow a research topic, and much more.

Although CCC does not have a physical library, we do have a librarian who can help with all of these resources. Additionally, CCC students have full access to Northern Arizona University’s Cline Library, as well as other state and community libraries:

Financial Aid, Scholarships and Veteran Services

CCC offers a variety of financial aid and scholarships to full and part-time students. Financial aid includes the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Federal Work Study (FWS), Federal Direct Stafford Student Loans, and Federal Direct PLUS Loans for parents, CCC Grant, CCC Retention Grant and CCC Scholarships. In order to apply for these types of Financial Aid, students are required to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which is located online at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa. CCC is approved to train students under government educational programs for veterans and eligible dependents of deceased or disabled veterans. CCC has numerous scholarships available every year. Applications are usually accepted from late December to mid-March for the following academic year. Depending on the organization providing the scholarship, applications are reviewed based on need, academic achievement, and/or community involvement in various areas. Some CCC scholarships, waivers and grants are funded in part or in whole with Arizona state monies. These funds are governed by Arizona State laws. A person who is not a citizen of the United States, who is without lawful immigration status, and who is enrolled as a student at any university under the jurisdiction of the Arizona Board of Regents, or at any community college under the jurisdiction of a community college district in this state is not entitled to tuition waivers, fee waivers, grants, scholarship assistance, financial aid, tuition assistance or any other type of financial assistance that is subsidized or paid in whole or in part with state monies. Please contact Financial Aid and Veteran Services at finaid@coconino.edu for more information.

 

Federal Work Study

Federal Work Study (FWS) is an exciting opportunity available to students who show financial need as determined by the FAFSA. FWS jobs are listed on our website. Students interested in FWS must complete the FAFSA at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa and complete an application for employment on-line at https://www.coconino.edu/types-of-aid/federal-work-study. The Office of Student Financial Aid will then determine the student’s eligibility for FWS. CCC offices and community service agencies will review applications and contact students directly based on the skills and information listed on the application. FWS encourages community service work and work related to the student’s course of study. When completing the FAFSA for the next academic year, students exclude FWS earnings from their earned income. FWS earnings are considered financial aid and are not included in the calculation of EFC which can help some students qualify for more need-based financial aid in subsequent years.

Please contact the Office of Student Financial Aid at 928-226-4219 for more information.

 

Career Services

CCC aids in career/major selection, resume building, interviewing skills, job search strategies and job applications. We also have two free electronic programs available for student use.

Internships

Internships can be a great part of each student’s experience at CCC. Some programs have internships built into the program of study. If you want more information about these choices, please contact the dean who oversees the program you are looking at.

 

Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) at Northern Arizona University

It can be hard trying to figure out the right steps to go to school. The Educational Opportunity Center helps students learn about these steps. The program helps students who want to go to CCC. It can also help students who want to go to school outside of Arizona. The program has information about schools throughout the United States. The program also helps students with admissions and financial aid at CCC. EOC staff are located at the CCC Fourth Street Campus and Lone Tree Campus Student Center.

Disability Resources (DR)

CCC is committed to providing college-wide educational support and assistance for students with documented disabilities. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act requires that all CCC College programs, services, and facilities be accessible to individuals with disabilities except where the action necessary to achieve accessibility would result in a fundamental alteration of the program or would impose an undue burden. Disability Resources works closely with other college departments and community agencies to enhance and support your educational choices. All efforts will be made to promote independence and the highest extent of integration into our learning community.

An individual with a disability is an individual with a documented impairment that substantially limits one or more of that individual’s major life activities. Recognized disabilities include, but are not limited to, mobility impairments, deafness, hard of hearing, blindness, visual impairments, learning disabilities, chronic medical conditions, and psychological disorders.

Services are available for all CCC students who provide the required documentation and meet eligibility standards. Accommodations are established on an individual basis through an interactive process and are tailored to the needs of each student.

If students have a documented disability, they can arrange for accommodations by contacting the office of Disability Resources (DR). Students are encouraged to bring/send in documentation and meet with DR staff as soon as possible upon registering as a CCC student. Upon receipt of appropriate documentation, determination of eligibility as a student with a disability may take up to four weeks. A student may initiate this process at any time. Please visit the Disability Resources website for more detailed information regarding accommodations, documentation guidelines, the registration process, student responsibilities and timelines for accommodations requests.

If you have a documented disability and feel you require accommodations, please contact the Disability Resources office. Please be aware that you must contact the DR office each semester you request accommodations. This should occur at least four weeks before classes start. Without four weeks’ notice, we cannot assure the timely availability of materials or accommodation. Please visit the Disability Resources website for more detailed information.

 

Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC)

Through an arrangement with Northern Arizona University (NAU), CCC students in Flagstaff can take freshmen and sophomore-year classes in ROTC. The goal of the ROTC classes is to provide a foundation of military knowledge and skills needed by junior officers in the military. These classes provide Army or Air Force ROTC basic course credit to students intended to enroll in or continue their participation in either Army or Air Force ROTC classes at Northern Arizona University or other universities hosting Army and/or Air Force ROTC programs. Students can register for these classes at CCC and take the courses at NAU. For further information, contact Army ROTC 928-523-8658 or Air Force ROTC 928-523-5371.

Campus Safety and Security

Coconino Community College is responsible for maintaining a professional and safe environment, conducive to educational pursuits throughout its district. In its commitment to the provision of a secure environment, procedures are established through review of the College Safety and Security Committee regarding dissemination of accurate and timely information concerning individual safety and security in compliance with related federal and state regulations. Security on locations where CCC classes are held is generally available during regularly scheduled classes and lab hours. A Campus Security Report is also available from CCC and may be accessed at the college website. .

You may notice blue poles with blue lights mounted on top in the parking lots at the Lone Tree campus. The blue lights are an added measure of security for students and employees. There is a call button on the pole, which will contact security in case of an emergency. There are also surveillance cameras on top of them.

You are a student at one of the nation’s safest colleges. A Federal mandate, known as the Clery Act, requires the majority of post-secondary educational institutions to collect and publish statistics of a number of crimes that occurred during the previous year. These statistics are also made public at http://www.coconino.edu/security. Review them and feel free to compare them to any place you want.

Student ID Cards

Photo student ID cards are provided by Campus Security.  Although the ID card is not generally required to access campus services, it does serve as proof of identity in accessing educational records and other information. Students are issued a “system generated” identification number at the time of initial admissions; social security numbers are NOT used by CCC for student identification purposes.

Parking and Parking Permits

Adequate parking and secure parking lots are established at all CCC campuses and locations. Parking permits are required at the Lone Tree and Fourth Street campuses. The permits regulate access to parking at these locations only. Emergency phones are installed throughout the Lone Tree campus parking lot. Violations of parking and traffic regulations and procedures are subject to fines and disciplinary action.

Lost and Found

Campus Security is responsible for lost and found items at each campus location. Lost or stolen items may also be reported to Campus Security.
