COVID-19 Temporary Policies

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.

 
Admissions Policies:
  • Effective March 16, 2020, ACC is suspending the admission requirement for prospective students to take and pass the Wonderlic SLE Exam for most programs.  The suspension of this requirement does not apply to the Surgical Technology and Associate Degree in Nursing programs.
  • Effective March 19, 2020, ACC is suspending the admission requirement for prospective students to take and pass the Wonderlic SLE Exam for the Associate Degree in Nursing program. In lieu of the SLE Exam, students will be required to take and pass the Wonderlic SLEQ Exam with a score of a 22 or better.
  • Effective March 19, 2020, ACC is suspending the requirement for students to take and pass the HESI Exam for the Respiratory Therapy, Vocational Nursing, Occupational Therapy Assistant, and Radiography programs. In lieu of the HESI Exam, students will be required to take and pass the Wonderlic SLEQ Exam with a score of a 20 or better.
    1. Retake Policy -
      1. If the student fails the SLEQ on their 1st attempt, they can retake the SLEQ on the next day. 
      2. If the student fails on 2nd attempt, they will be required to one week to attempt for the third time. 
      3. If the student is unsuccessful after their 3rd attempt, they will be required to wait 30 days. 
 
Financial Information:

Effective March 19, 2020, ACC is waiving the Application Fee requirement for all programs.

 

Program Modality:

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.

 

Proof of High School Graduation or Equivalency:

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.

 

Postsecondary Transcripts:

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.
