Course Orientation

Each student MUST complete the Online Orientation form via the course Blackboard page. Each student MUST complete the Online Orientation by the date listed in the Course Schedule

WARNING!! Students who do NOT submit the Online Orientation form by the date listed in the Course Schedule may lose some or all of their financial aid.

New Federal Financial Aid reporting guidelines require the College to report students who "never attend" a course. ACC in turn requires faculty to report students who "never attended" by the Official Reporting Date. The Official Reporting Date happens very early in the semester. See the ACC Registration Calendar for the Official Reporting Dates. Please see the ACC Financial Aid office for questions about your financial aid and how the new policy might affect your financial aid status. So, make sure that you submit the Online Orientation form by the date listed in the Course Schedule.

To orient yourself to the course:

       Click Online Orientation;

       Review all the items on the page and then near the bottom click on the WRITE SUBMISSION box;

       Type in the following statement:
