Student Classifications

When applying to the college, it is important to understand student classifications.

Students in Good Standing

Students in good standing are those who have favorable academic and social records at County College of Morris (CCM). Students who previously enrolled at CCM and who withdrew in good standing are eligible to re-enroll through the Office of Records and Registration. Students who were previously non-matriculated and who wish to matriculate must apply through the Office of Records and Registration.

Academically Dismissed Students

Students who are academically dismissed are those who do not have a favorable academic record and were asked to leave the college for a period of time. These students are not eligible to re-enroll until either one semester or one year has elapsed depending on the terms of the dismissal. Once the term of dismissal has been satisfied, students should contact the Office of Counseling and Student Success to request to re-enroll after dismissal. All re-enrolled, academically dismissed students will return on academic probation.

Visiting Students

Students who are not under disqualification from any college or university may enroll in the summer sessions or on a space available basis in the regular semester as a visiting student. A certificate of good standing and approval of transfer credit by the student’s institution may be requested.

Senior Citizens

Students who are over the age of 65 must provide proof of date of birth (e.g., driver’s license, passport, birth certificate) to be eligible for the reduced tuition rate. The admissions application fee is also waived for seniors.

Students with Disabilities

CCM is committed to ensuring students with disabilities have access to academic programs, student activities and educational resources. Students with disabilities are provided with support services that are appropriate to their disabilities. Various assistive technology and accommodations may be recommended based on the nature of the disabilities in an effort to make the college campus barrier free for the students. Some examples of the assistive technology and accommodations offered by the college include a Telecommunication Device for the Deaf (TDD number 973-328-5105), voice recognition software, scanners to print in alternative format, extended time on test, distraction free test environment.

Students with physical, psychological, medical or learning disabilities should contact Accessibility Services Office in the Sherman H. Masten Learning Resource Center (library) at 973-328-5296 for more information.

Students with Visual and Hearing Impairments

CCM provides students who are visually impaired the opportunity to read the college catalog and other college brochures through an alternate media method. Those wishing to use this service should contact the Accessibility Services Office.

Students with hearing impairments may call the college’s Telecommunication Device for the Deaf, TDD number 973-328-5105, for information.

Veteran Students

Eligible veterans, dependents and reservists may apply to receive educational assistance from the Veterans Administration (VA) while enrolled at CCM. To qualify for VA benefits, students must matriculate into an approved degree or certificate program and maintain satisfactory academic progress.

Please note that Veterans Administration education benefits are not payable for courses previously completed. Therefore, student-veterans who declare academic bankruptcy upon reentry into the college are advised that VA benefits will not be invoiced for courses that received passing grades during the initial attendance period. For further information contact the school certifying officer in the Office of Counseling and Student Success.

Note: Individuals who are eligible for the Montgomery GI Bill under Chapters 30, Chapter 35, 1606, 1607, and VRAP are responsible for paying their own tuition regardless of when they receive their VA benefits check. CCM does not provide tuition deferment for these veterans.
