An SAT Math score of 550 or higher or and ACT Math score of 21 or higher indicate college-level mathematics eligibility.
Submit an Early College Access Recommendation form. This form gives permission by signature for early release and lists college courses approved by parent(s), school official (high school guidance counselor or principal or for home school students the director of the sponsoring home school program) and the college. This form is available in high school guidance offices, AACC college service offices and online.
