Apply for Admission
Thank you for choosing Central Texas College! CTC has an open admissions policy in which educational opportunities are available to students locally, nationally, and internationally. There is no application fee and applications are accepted year-around!
The Admissions team is here to serve you and we are committed to providing the best service possible. We are back in the office and can offer face-to-face appointments on-campus or virtual appointments.
The first step is to submit an application to CTC. The application is free and there are several ways to apply:
Online: Submit via the ApplyTexas application
Some applicants may be required to bring in residency documentation. An admissions specialist will go over your application with you to determine if that’s necessary.
Students who are not Dual Credit/Early Admission students who have not graduated from high school or completed the GED will need to apply for Individual Approval status to take coursework at CTC. The application for individual approval is an eform linked here.
If you are unable to access the online application, you may print and complete the application to submit in person, by mail, fax (254) 526-1545, or send as a secure attachment through eforms: Student to Staff:

Bacterial meningitis immunization requirement
Students may be required to submit proof of a bacterial meningitis vaccine before attending classes. If you are older than 21, reside outside the state of Texas or taking only online classes, you are likely exempt from this requirement. To see more detailed information, see Immunization Requirements.
Returning students and reclassification
A returning student is someone who has previously taken classes through CTC. In general, you will follow the steps above if it’s been more than a year since you last attended school or submitted an application. In some cases, this may lead to reclassification.
A student initially classified as a nonresident based upon information provided in the Core Residency Questions may petition for reclassification by providing the CTC Admissions office located at the central campus in Killeen, Texas, with supporting documentation. If a change is made based on supporting documents 209 information received prior to the census date of the current term, the change will apply to the current term. Otherwise, any change will apply to the first succeeding term in which the student enrolls.
