Student Services at ACC that won’t cost you a thing!

ACC students in writing centerArapahoe Community College is the perfect place to begin – or continue – your journey towards Moving Mountains with your academic and career goals.

ACC offers an affordable education (lowest tuition among state-funded schools) with instructors who are experts in their field. Classes are available online and at our campuses in Littleton, Parker and Castle Rock. We’re close to home, and our small class sizes allow students to receive individual attention.

Our Career & Transfer Center provides guidance for students looking to continue their education beyond ACC. In fact, we offer guaranteed transfer programs to all four-year Colorado public institutions. Transfer fairs and employment expos, as well as job/career exploration events, are held during the fall and spring semesters. Peer tutoring services, as well as math and writing support centers, are offered at no cost to students. Academic Advising provides one-on-one assistance with course selection and the registration process as students develop their personalized plan for one of seven degree pathways.

Students can get involved with clubs and organizations as they acclimate to college life. Our honor societies and student government foster leadership skills and provide opportunities for scholarly growth. The Student Success Center facilitates a variety of tools and enrichment workshops to hone time-management and study skills.

ACC is committed to supporting veterans and military-connected students, and has been named as a Military-Friendly School. Student Access Services can assist with permanent or temporary accommodations, and on-campus counseling services are available through the Student Engagement Center. ACC also introduced the Elevate program in 2016, providing students with intellectual and developmental disabilities the opportunity to pursue higher education.

The Library & Learning Commons offers the optimal environment for individual research or group study sessions. Our Fitness Center is open Monday – Saturday, providing a welcoming facility complete with treadmills, spin bikes, free weights, locker rooms and contemporary recreational amenities. ACC also has a fully-accredited childcare center on site, providing students, employees and members of the community with a clean, healthy and nurturing environment for little ones throughout the fall, spring and summer semesters.

ACC is partnering with Colorado State University and the Douglas County School District on the new Castle Rock Collaboration Campus. Students can now complete their associate degree or certification in its entirety at the recently-renovated Parker Campus. Brand new, state-of-the-art science labs at the Littleton Campus will deliver the best in experiential and collaborative learning.

Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing innovative and responsive educational and economic opportunities in an accessible, inclusive environment that promotes success for students, employees and members of the south metro Denver communities.

Whether you’re a prospective, current or transfer student, you’ll find the education and resources you need to Move Mountains at ACC and beyond.

ACC Invoices and Small Payments are now Digital

ACC is Moving Mountains

We’re making it easier for our students to succeed with a brand new, integrated system that ensures full user friendliness and modern capabilities.

Changes that have occurred:

Effective September 15, 2016, ACC will be using monthly Electronic invoicing and no longer producing physical bills. These bills will be produced on the 15th of every month, rather than 2 to 3 times per semester. The Electronic invoices provide detailed listing of charges, expected Financial Aid, Courses, and options for remittance of payment.

Electronic invoices are produced for ALL students with a balance – even if you have a 3rd party committed to paying for your tuition or if you have signed up for a payment plan through Nelnet Business Solutions.

Why is ACC moving towards Electronic Invoices?

Electronic Invoices provide a more accurate, more frequent and timely bill. It’s a greater convenience for students and is easy to locate. It also helps track payments from 3rd parties and tracks the enrollment status (as well as any affiliated Financial Aid) that a student may possess. And system records are more capable as an electronic standard versus the traditional US Mail.

Where can I find my Transaction History?

Electronic invoices will be housed in myACC – 6 easy steps to access:

  1. Log in to myACC.
  2. Click on the “Student Finance” tab.
  3. Find the “Billing Statement” box.
  4. Click on “View Monthly Statements or Billing Notices.”
  5. Click on the “Click here for credit card payments and/or historical account statements at ACC.”
  6. Find the “Your Bills” box and click on “Banner Sched Inv S…”
    Students will receive an email notification when Electronic invoices are published and available for viewing.

And Moving Towards the Future!
