Your syllabi and office hours must be posted online through Lighthouse. This is a state requirement and at some point we will be audited to see if we are in compliance with the state law. If you have not used Lighthouse before, go to A tutorial is available there. This should be done about 5 days before the semester begins. Check to see that all of your classes have syllabi posted by going to the ACC web schedule, choosing the current semester, choosing "Instructor by Discipline" and then your name.

Upload Your Syllabi

Please also upload your syllabi to Google Drive. You can access the folder here:

Physics, Astronomy, and Engineering Fall Syllabi


If you are no longer using a textbook that you check out from me or another administrative assistant, please return it. If the book is an old edition, I do not want it back.


Please fill out the ACC Web Directory Change Form if there are any changes, or if you are a new instructor.

Parking Permits

ACC parking permits are now available online (you pay online with a debit/credit card or electronic check and pick up the parking permit at a campus cashier's office.) Please go to You will need to enter your vehicle license plate number as well as make and model of your vehicle.


There will be assessments for the fall classes. Check back here for details.
