Register & Pay for Classes: A Step-by-Step Guide
ACC's advisors and counselors can be an enormous help in answering questions and selecting courses, but remember that you are ultimately responsible for your own preparation, deadlines, and adherence to college policies.
This page lists the steps you need to take before, during, and after each registration period. Read it thoroughly and refer back to it often.
Taking care of a few things before you register can make the process easier.
Find when you register
Your registration eligibility date determines when you can begin registration for the upcoming semester.
- Tip: To get the best schedule possible, register as soon as you are eligible.
