Stay safe and on course!

Register now for winter and spring courses!

Carefully planning your winter and spring course load is a great way for you to pick up the pace and meet your educational goals faster. Winter registration is underway and spring registration is right around the corner! AACC offers a variety of short and long sessions to keep you moving forward. 

Don't hibernate this winter!

AACC's short winter term is a great time to pick up the pace. By taking a winter course, you can finish your degree or certificate plans faster! Winter courses are accelerated, meaning courses cover the same material as a fall or spring course in a shorter time period. You learn the material quickly, with the same support and attention you get in a longer session. Some winter courses allow you to earn 3 credits in just two weeks! Challenge yourself to get ahead and stay ahead.

Winter Term: Dec. 21-Jan. 22

A majority of winter courses are online. Take a look at our winter courses by visiting our course search, which is updated daily.

Four- and Five-Week Sessions: Dec. 21

Two-Week Session: Jan. 4-17

What's new for spring?

We're expanding hybrid and online course options for the spring term. Although the majority of AACC classes remain online for winter and spring term, a growing number of courses will be scheduled in the hybrid format, which blends online and in-person learning.

Learn about the differences in online and hybrid course formats.

If you're new to us, there are a few things you need to do before you can register. First, complete a credit application.
