Spring 2020 Advising

Will end Friday, January 17th for New Students and
Tuesday, January 22, 2020 for Current Culinary Students.

Current/former Culinary or Pastry Arts Student looking to register for Summer or Fall 2019 culinary classes will need to make a Culinary Advising appointment with one of our Culinary Advisors.

Prospective Culinary and Pastry Art Students should complete the enrollment process before making a Culinary Advising appointment.

New ACC Students wanting to take Culinary and Pastry classes will need to meet with an Academic Advisor to ensure your major is up-to-date. We will not advise Non-Culinary/Pastry students for our classes as spaces are limited. When you’re ready for Culinary Advising, please make a Culinary Advising appointment.

ALL STUDENTS should arrive on time and prepared with a completed Student Petition and valid Food Handler Certificate. If you already have a Food Handlers Certificate on file, ensure that it is valid. If you do not have a Food Handlers Certificate or if it is invalid, you will not be allowed to participate in labs.
