How to enroll

Credit classes

If you already have an ACC eID, simply register for the course(s) you want.

Course Registration

If you are not already an ACC student, you will need to complete the ACC admissions process before registering.

ACC Admissions (Select “Public and Social Services” when asked for your Area of Study.)

Continuing Education

All activity classes are also offered through ACC’s Continuing Education (CE) department. If you live outside of ACC’s service area, you may find it more economical to register through Continuing Education. Continuing Education students do not need to go through the full credit class ACC registration process; simply register and pay.

If you live within an ACC District area, the cost is the same as a credit class. Besides earning college credit, enrolling as a credit student gives you other benefits: You will have a student ID, be able to use other ACC facilities, be eligible for any student discounts in your community, etc.
