Based on the current recommendations from the CDC due to COVID-19 to practice social distancing, the College is updating policies to align with recommended practices.
Effective March 19, 2020, ACC is waiving the Application Fee requirement for all programs.
Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, ACC has moved most of the courses into a distance education modality. However, as soon as the COVID-19 circumstances change, students will be expected to return on campus to complete their program on-site in the regular learning modality as approved by ABHES and outlined in the college catalog. As the situation evolves, ACC will continue to communicate to students the expected return date to their campus to complete their program on-site.
Applicants for enrollment at ACC must provide verification of high school completion, equivalency or other documentation establishing their ability to do college level work. Students will be required to complete a Statement of High School Graduation or Equivalent to support this requirement until acceptable documentation is able to be obtained and submitted to ACC (no later than 30 days from reopening of the institution that holds the required documentation). If it is found that the student did not meet this requirement, the individual would be dismissed and all state and federal funds would be returned, and the student would be financially responsible for all tuition charges incurred.
Students applying for transfer credit must submit official postsecondary transcripts prior to the beginning of the program. Students may be scheduled based on an unofficial transfer credit review for their first term of courses. However, official transfer credit will not be awarded based on unofficial transcripts. For programs that require applicants to meet minimum academic performance requirements, ACC will perform a transfer credit evaluation when official transcripts are able to be obtained and submitted (no later than 30 days from reopening of the institution that holds the required transcripts). If it is found that the student did not meet the academic performance requirements as was demonstrated on the unofficial transcripts, the individual would be dismissed, all state and federal funds would be returned and the student would be financially responsible for all tuition charges incurred.
Effective April 23, 2020, ACC is modifying the incomplete policy for the Vocational Nursing program and all degree programs (Associate Degree in Nursing, Surgical Technology, Respiratory Therapy, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Physical Therapist Assistant, and Radiography). An "incomplete" cannot be given as a final grade. At the end of a course, student’s failure to complete the required class work, clinical hours, assignments and/or tests due to extenuating circumstance may result in an incomplete grade. Students may, with the appropriate approval, be granted a maximum extension of 140 calendar days (from the last scheduled class day) to complete any course work and/or clinical hours. Although the incomplete period could be as long as 140 calendar days, the course requirements must be made up and a final grade awarded as soon as possible. If the final grade results in a failing grade, the module or course must be repeated in its entirety.
