In response to COVID-19, we are continuing to offer services remotely for our students, faculty and staff. Below you will find some of our frequently asked questions. If you still don't have an answer to your question, contact the Health Sciences admissions office.
Health Sciences academic advisors are available to meet with you remotely through your college email and through virtual advising. No appointment is needed. Simply email your advisor directly using your AACC email and ask your advising questions. Your advisor will respond and will open a virtual advising session as needed.
If you do not have an AACC email, use your personal email. Your advisor will be able to address questions that do not involve protected information using your personal email account.

All on-campus testing is currently suspended. The college is working toward providing available options to students. For testing requests, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep checking with our testing office for any updates.
You are encouraged to submit transcripts electronically as this will significantly reduce the amount of time needed to process transcripts. For official transcripts the primary resource is Parchment. Transcripts can be accepted through a number of electronic formats (EDI, E-Script and National Student Clearinghouse). You should be able to request that transcripts be sent electronically from your prior institution to AACC via email@example.com. Transcripts submitted by mail will have a significantly increased processing time.
You may email your paper application as a PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the application is received, you'll receive a reply email. If you do not receive a reply within two business days, please email us again.
Do not email your full date of birth or Social Security number. These are not requested on your application and we want to make sure that no protected information is sent via email. A copy of your driver’s license or other government-issued photo ID is no longer required so you don't need to email a copy with your application.
Before emailing the address verification and supporting documentation that is required by your program of interest, white out financial, date of birth or other confidential information that may be on the documents.
In addition, paper applications may be mailed to:

The spring 2021 Registered Nursing application is now available online.
To access the online RN Program Application:
We understand that physicians’ offices are not making routine appointments right now. We will give you ample time to complete the necessary documents required for clinicals. Complete as much as you can, gather medical documents that you may have for previous vaccines and check your AACC email periodically for any updates.
CPR Courses are available for summer registration at AACC.
AACC's School of Continuing Education and Workforce Development is offering numerous CPR courses for our students starting June 6. Learn how to register for noncredit courses. Due to the many students who will need this course, there will be enough sections open to make sure our students are able to become CPR certified prior to clinicals.
Visit the Basic Life Support page for CPR courses as they become available.
For current cohorts of admitted students, refer to your program chair or director for updated information regarding program clinical start dates.
All correspondence will be done through your MyAACC email account. Be sure to check your email daily.
When the faculty submit a traditional grade at the end of the spring 2020 term, you can request the traditional grade be changed to a pass/fail grade. The Committee on Academic Standards will authorize the change of a grade to pass/fail based on the traditional grade submitted by the instructor.
Although you may wish to consider a pass/fail option instead of a traditional letter grade for each class you complete, please think about how this may affect selection into Health Sciences programs. If your program of interest is a competitive selection and weight is given to course grades, then you may not want to choose the pass/fail option.
Applicants and students will receive information via email about how the mandatory meeting will be conducted.
All students taking BIO-231 or BIO-233 during the summer 2020 term are eligible to apply for the spring 2021 Registered Nursing program. When completing the online application, enter your present grade. The application will show as incomplete until the final grade can be verified and uploaded to the application, no later than Aug. 15. You must email the Health Sciences admissions office at email@example.com if you are taking the Biology prerequisite this summer. You will be notified if additional information is needed.
