The CIC uses an online process for admissions with the Tk20 suite. In order to apply to any of the programs at the college, you will need to create an admissions account.

Tips for Using Tk20
- Tk20's preferred browser is Firefox. The use of any other browser may result in limited or failed system capabilities.
- Some networks, such as DoD networks, may cause you to experience limited or blocked access to Tk20. A common error experienced when a network has blocked access to Tk20 is the Create Your Account page clearing out after pressing the Create My Account button resulting in no credentials being issued. To address access issues, please use Tk20 on a personal network.
- Issues such as forgotten username/password, document upload failures, application availability, etc. can be directed to the CIC Office of Student Services.
