Advising & Completion

The High School Programs Advising & Completion Department is responsible for advising all high school students enrolled in ACC courses, monitoring their success, and providing academic coaching. Staff from this department are the students’ main support once they are enrolled in ACC programs. Our staff can assist students who are struggling with college coursework or experiencing other personal or behavioral issues that may interfere with success in college. They can also assist graduating high school seniors with completion of an ACC credential or transition to ACC or university after high school graduation.

Department Core Belief: Every student deserves the opportunity to achieve success by reaching his or her personal educational goals.
