Online Services for Students

Online Services

Beginning with the initial admissions process, Cecil College has numerous online services to aid you throughout your time here. As long as you have an Internet connection, you are able to connect with advising, visit our online bookstore, and take advantage of the many functions offered by Career and Job Placement Services.

Request disability support services, apply for financial aid, and visit the library. MyCecil provides access to a wide array of resources and features a handy mobile version. You can also get help from the Online Writing Lab, learn about student life and athletics, pick up some study strategies, request technical support, and access technology resources.

As you begin to think about where to continue your education after Cecil, we offer a number of online transfer services, including information on the many partnerships we have with four-year institutions. If you are a veteran, be sure to check out the links for veterans affairs.
