Meeting with an Advisor is Step 3 for new students to enroll in AACC. If you have been admitted (Step 1) and assessed for English, reading and math (Step 2), or have official or unofficial transcripts with college level English and math courses successfully completed, you are now ready to meet with an Advisor.

Transfer students can be advised using hand-carried unofficial transcripts, but must submit official college transcripts from all previous institutions to the Records office for official transfer credit evaluation.

If you placed into MAT 012, please also bring a copy of your high school transcript to the Advising session.

IMPORTANT: As a new student, in order to participate in Advising sessions, you must have activated your MyAACC portal and college computer accounts. Visit Accessing MyAACC for details.
