Register Now for Fall

AACC Riverhawks are gearing up for an exciting, safe return to campus. Read more about our COVID-19 operations and protocols. We've expanded hybrid, online and in-person course options for the fall 2021 academic term. Learn about the different ways to take a course at AACC and choose the format that works best for you.

Fall consists of multiple start dates or sessions that give you more flexibility in scheduling courses and the convenience of choosing when to begin your education. So whether you like a traditional fall schedule, want to start a little later in the term or prefer shorter sessions, no problem! Most likely, we have a session for you with several courses that fit into each one. You can even consider registering for back-to-back eight-week courses as a way to pick up the pace. 

  • 15-week session runs Aug. 30-Dec. 12
  • 13-week session runs Sept. 13-Dec. 12
  • First eight-week session runs Aug. 30-Oct. 24
  • Second eight-week session runs Oct. 25-Dec. 19
