Students with 45+ hours should speak to an ACC Completion Counselor, rather than the AoS Advisor. Completion counselors are academic counselors who specialize in providing additional support to students who are close to finishing their degree or certificate (45+ hours). Our primary goal is to support students in successfully attaining a credential or achieving graduation by providing academic guidance and necessary resources for obstacles that come across your path.
