Once you have determined which program is right for you, then it's time to get ready for registration. Classes are not open to general registration and you must follow the process below.
Initially, a new student needs to determine which culinary arts program to pursue. ACC offers two Associate's Degrees and two certificates that all offer in depth instruction, but accomplish different goals for a student. You may attend a New Student Information Session on the Eastview Campus if you have questions or would like to discuss this information.
Information Sessions are currently being held every Tuesday at 10AM in Room 3156 and Thursday at 4PM in Room 3154. These sessions will close on December 12th.
*Due to the high volume of students attempting to register, please pay careful attention to this process in order to avoid any discrepancies and expedite your registration.
Get ready to take credit classes at ACC. (Existing ACC students skip to Step 2.) If you have graduated from high school or have a GED then you are ready to get started taking credit classes at ACC. Please review the Destination: ACC web page for the step by step process for all students new to ACC.
When you "Meet with an Academic Advisor or Counselor" you want to declare your major in your chosen Culinary Arts program during this session.
Proceed to Step 2 when you reach "Clear any registration holds."
Submit a petition to the Culinary Arts Department. Culinary Arts classes are not open for general registration. All ACC students, with a valid student ID, who would like to take Culinary Arts classes are required to submit a petition to the department asking for the classes to be made available.
New incoming students must also submit a current Austin/Travis County Food Handler's Card along with their petition. You may get your Food Handler's Card from Safeway Classes. It must be for Austin/Travis County. The cost is $20. Please bring the petition and food handler's card to the Culinary Arts Department on the Eastview Campus. This form must be reviewed by a faculty advisor and approved before you will be eligible to register for classes.
Spring 2014 petitions are available at this time.
Register for classes. Congratulations! After you have submitted the petition you are ready for registration. Please review the Registration Eligibility Times to find out when you can register. You will be contacted if there are any discrepancies.
The department will email you with information on Uniform and Tool requirements and how to purchase these items.
All new students are required to attend the mandatory Culinary Arts orientation.
