ACC charges an additional fee for students registering for a course for a third time or more. This fee applies to credit and Continuing Education courses and includes course attempts made since the fall 2002 semester.
ACC cannot receive state funding for courses a student takes three or more times. The "third attempt" fee was implemented to help the college recover some of the costs of these courses.
Check Tuition and Fees for the third course attempt fee amount.
The third attempt rule does not apply to developmental courses and other select courses. See course exemptions.
