Admissions – An Open Door

Student receives help with the admissions process

As visitors to the ACC homepage explore the college’s programs and services, they are offered two calls to action – click either the Request Information or Apply Now button. Both will direct the information to the college’s Recruit CRM system.

Visitors who need more information about their enrollment options before applying or who want to use the website throughout the application experience will find what they need on the Admissions webpage.

The page provides tabbed information to guide users through the four steps in the admissions process, with links to deeper information needed to complete each step. Auxiliary information such as applying for Financial Aid and important dates for prospective students are provided.

Visitors who are seeking other educational opportunities outside a traditional degree or certificate will find links to Continuing Education, Adult Education, and options for English language instruction here on the Admissions page.

Additional application information for prospective students that may belong to a particular type of applicant is also available. These groups include current high school students, active military personnel and veterans, students who may need learning accommodations, and international students who may need to submit additional documentation along with their ACC application.

The Admissions webpage directs users to seek assistance from the College Destination Center if they need it.

The Academic and Career Programs serves as the college’s “storefront,” showcasing all the educational choices we offer.

The top band of the page introduces the prospective student to the different instructional pathways at ACC with explanations of how each is aligned to different outcomes. This is followed by a guide-point band for the “deep shopper” that encourages exploration of the different program options.

Other bands contain information for audiences that may be looking for options that are specific to them. These include high school programs, English language instruction, and college readiness programs.

ACC has a wide variety of learning opportunities and engaging student interaction that can accommodate a prospective student’s individual situation and interests. These are highlighted with easy-to-scan content areas that visitors can click to learn more about that particular option or experience.

Imagine yourself as a prospective student browsing for an academic program or educational option, and check out the Academic & Career Programs page.
