Application for Admission

ACC is an open door institution. All eligible students are accepted. The application establishes a computer record, which is activated for registration when you meet with an ACC advisor. Follow these steps:

  1. Complete the online application, which will be entered into ACC’s computer system within 24 hours of submission. After you have completed the application, you will be directed to the link for the Residency Information Form. Download the form, complete it, and either mail, fax or deliver it in person to a campus Admissions Office. Specific instructions are printed at the bottom of the form.
  2. Submit, to an ACC Admissions office, an official high school transcript or a copy of your GED certificate if you have never attended college, or official transcripts from all colleges previously attended. Documents submitted to ACC as a part of the admissions requirements become the property of the college.
  3. The THEA or an approved alternative test is required unless you are exempt. Verify your status with a counselor.
  4. ACC requires new degree- or certificate-seeking students who have not completed twelve or more hours at another college to complete a new student orientation.
  5. Meet with an advisor or counselor at an ACC campus. The advisor or counselor will activate your application, allowing you to register.
  6. International students must contact the ACC International Student Office in order to complete the registration process.
  7. Register using the ACC Online web registration system. Your registration is not complete until you have paid your tuition and fees.
