Now that you’ve applied, taken your placement tests and met with an academic advisor, you can register for credit courses at AACC! What will you learn? Who will you become? Answering those questions starts with choosing your first AACC classes. Be sure to register as early as possible – no one is given priority registration, so popular courses fill up fast.

And remember – if you need help, we are ready to help you through the registration process. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions.

Registration Dates and Deadlines

Credit courses are offered in four terms – winter, spring, summer and fall. Registration for fall  begins in April. Winter term registration begins in October. Spring registration opens in November and registration for summer classes begins in March. The Academic Calendar provides specific dates. 

To increase your chances of getting the course and class section you want, register as early as possible. Open registration ends before the first scheduled class meeting with limited opportunity for late registration the first couple of days of the session.

Refund Deadlines

For classes scheduled eight weeks or more:

  • Students may drop the class for five calendar days after the date of the first scheduled class meeting* and receive a full refund.
  • Students have five additional calendar days to withdraw from the class and receive a 60% reduction of the tuition, general student fees and lab fees charged for the class.
  • If a student withdraws more than 10 calendar days after the date of the first scheduled class meeting, no refunds will be issued.

For classes scheduled seven weeks or less:

  • Students may drop the class for two calendar days after the date of the first scheduled class meeting* and receive a full refund. No refunds will be given after that date.

*For hybrid, hybrid synchronous, online and online synchronous classes, the first day of the session is considered the first scheduled class meeting.

Registering late or making a change?

It is critical that you make every attempt to finalize your schedule well before the first day of class. If circumstances call for a schedule change, you may be able to register for some classes after the first scheduled day of class. For online classes, you typically have until the end of the third day of the class session. For online sync classes (those that meet online real time and for which dates and times are listed) the deadline varies class by class.

If the class appears in the course search as open, you may register for that class. Authorization to register during the later registration period requires department approval. Contact the assistant dean for the required permission to register after the late registration period.
