STEP 1: Complete the ACC application
Apply to ACC. If you have not applied to the college, you cannot earn college credit. If you've taken courses through our non-credit Community Education department, you'll need to re-apply as a credit student.
Some information you will need in order to complete you application is:
- Your Social Security Number
- Your parent's or guardian's driver license number and date of issue
- The date of issue of your parent's or guardian's vehicle license plate
- The month and year your parent or guardian began living in Colorado
STEP 2: Complete the COF application
The College Opportunity Fund, or COF, provides a portion of tuition for the first 145 credits earned towards your bachelor's degree. If you do not apply for COF, ACC will bill you or your parent for the portion that would have been paid for by the College Opportunity Fund.
You may now apply for COF simply by checking YES in the final section of your ACC application! If you do not check YES, you may apply for COF at the College Access Network.
STEP 3: Satisfy testing requirements
Testing is important so you can decide if you are ready for college-level work. Some classes have prerequisite test scores you must meet.
The English classes require the minimum ACT scores of:
English – 18
Reading – 17
Check with your counselor for information about these courses.
ACT scores may be used instead of the Accuplacer scores. Accuplacer will be given at 2:35 January, 16th and 17th in room S3. If you can not make either date you must go to the ACC campus no later than January 19th to take the test there. The cost of the Accplacer is free at Arapahoe High School or $10 at ACC.
STEP 4: Register for the class at your high school.
If you do not appear on the high school roster by the Add Deadline you will not be enrolled for college credit.
STEP 5: Complete the Concurrent Enrollment Agreement and Registration Form
You MUST complete this form in order to be enrolled in the course for college credit. This form is required by the State of Colorado for all students concurrently enrolled.
STEP 6: Purchase your textbook
Textbooks are available approximately four weeks before the term starts. ACC recommends purchasing your book from the ACC Bookstore. Books from the ACC bookstore are sure to be the correct edition.
STEP 7: We will register you into your Concurrent Enrollment class for college credit if you are in the high school class, have applied to ACC, completed all testing requirements and completed and returned the Concurrent Enrollment Agreement and Registration Form.
Please be familiar with all Concurrent Enrollment Program Requirements.
You must pass your class with a C or better to earn college credit!
