New VisCom Student? Here’s How to Get Started

Looking to start taking design classes? Or maybe you’d like to learn how to use tools like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign? You’re in the right place!

If you’re new to ACC, then your first step in order to take classes is to submit an ACC Admissions application here. Once you have completed that process, you will receive your student ID which you’ll need to log-in to the Self-Service portal to register and pay for classes.

If you’ve taken classes at ACC before, then please contact the Area of Study Advising office to make sure you do not have any holds on your account that would prevent you from registering for classes.
