Applications for the Gifted and Talented program are screened by a team comprised of representatives from AACC admissions, advising and academic departments. Students may be asked to interview and fine arts students may be asked to audition or to present a portfolio of their work. The final decision to admit is made by the AACC Gifted and Talented team.
Students admitted to the Gifted and Talented program shall not be allowed to enroll in physical education courses and/or HEA-100.
How to Enroll
To get started, you must be 16 years of age or older.
- Complete the Gifted and Talented application and obtain all necessary signatures.
- Apply online to the college www.aacc.edu/admissions or in person at any AACC location. You'll be given an AACC ID and MyAACC password. Keep this handy. You'll need it along the way.
- If you have not taken the ACT or SAT or do not have the minimum scores required by AACC to enter most college classes, you'll need to take the Accuplacer test at the Testing Center.
- With high school transcript and SAT, ACT or Accuplacer test scores in hand, submit your scores and ECAP application, to the AACC admissions office. They will check to see if you meet any necessary prerequisites and sign your form.
- You might find it easiest to register and pay for class in person at the Arnold campus (and stop by the Advising Office on your way) but you can register online (using your new AACC ID and MyAACC password) or at our other locations. However, the Registrar will need a copy of your Concurrent Enrollment application before you do so. Be sure to pay before the first day of class. You may choose to participate in AACC payment plan.
