"There are a lot of reasons why ACC is different from other schools. Mainly it’s the support that they provide to their students before, during and after your program."

Take The Next Step

It only takes a minute to take the next step towards a satisfying career! We've streamlined our online application. See for yourself!


Here’s how the process works:

  • Visit a career college campus and meet with an Admissions Advisor. This is an important first step. We encourage you to bring your family and involve them in the process.
  • Fill out an American Career College Admissions Form.
  • If you have your High School diploma or equivalent, you'll need to take the Wonderlic SLE entrance evaluation exam as one of the college entrance requirements. The Wonderlic SLE covers topics like basic math and English, and the required scores vary by program.
  • If you're interested in either the Vocational Nursing program or Respiratory Therapy program, you'll need to take the HESI exam in addition to the Wonderlic SLE. The HESI exam covers subjects relevant to health care training, and applicants must earn a score of 70% or higher.
