The process to apply on the CCC link is worth less

Everytime.i click the link to create a new account on the CCC it takes me to no where. Only says I need a email account to link to it, but gives nowhere to put mine in or to continue creating an acct and applying so that i can register for my classes. Im so frustrated it makes me want to just quit again. This shouldnt be so hard to do. It's a college! Make it more user friendly! This process just to get to where I can call a counselor and add a class impossible!
