College Transfer Tools

ACC Fall Transfer Fair 2017Over the last four years, I’ve had the privilege of working with countless ACC students interested in completing their associate degree and transferring to a university to obtain their bachelor’s degree. Our office, the Career & Transfer Center, is happy to sit down with students to plan out their ACC academic journey in order to ensure that they’re taking the right steps for maximum success. Along the way, I’ve introduced students to several cool transfer tools.

  1. Colorado Department of Higher Education’s Transfer Degrees. Our state has worked tirelessly to create agreements which allow you to graduate from a community college with a 60-credit Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree, enroll with junior status at a university and complete the bachelor’s degree in no more than an additional 60 credits (for a total of 120 credits). Check them out!
  2. Transferology – Want to learn how your credits will transfer exactly to many of our state institutions? Check out this cool website which performs an unofficial degree audit for you – before you apply!
  3. Transfer Fairs! The best way to maximize your transfer is to connect with your university representatives early and often. Meet with over 40 of them at the fall transfer fair, Wednesday, September 26 from 10:30am – 1:30pm in the Summit Room at Littleton Campus.

Want to learn more about transfer? Come by our office on the 2nd floor of the main building on the ACC’s Littleton Campus, M2010. Or call us at 303-797-5805.

Arapahoe Community College will host Start Now! enrollment expo on July 22

Start Now Orientation 2017Arapahoe Community College will offer an opportunity for anyone to begin the process of enrolling in Fall 2017 classes with its Start Now! orientation and registration event on Saturday, July 22, from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Littleton and Parker campuses.

Start Now! will provide all students who have applied to ACC – but are not yet registered – with the opportunity to complete new student orientation and free English/math assessment testing while receiving assistance with career/academic advising, financial aid and registration during this one-day session. Refreshments will be available.

The event will include tours of the College, and staff will be on hand to help answer any questions you may have about ACC’s programs, beginning your college career, and paying for college. Please bring your 2015 tax forms if you are interested in free assistance with completing the FAFSA.

Nursing simulation activityAttendees at the Parker campus – where students can now complete their Associate of Arts / Associate of Science degrees in their entirety – can tour the newly-remodeled science labs and classrooms designed to maximize experiential and collaborative learning. Parker-area students can now study natural sciences, math, health, and computer science closer to home.

At ACC, we offer both quality and value. ACC has nearly 100 associate degree and certificate programs, and credits are guaranteed to transfer into Colorado’s four-year public institutions. Our instructors are experts in their field, and classes are available both online and at our campuses in Littleton, Parker and Castle Rock.

RSVP now for Start Now! at Littleton or Parker. Don’t forget to have test scores and/or high school transcripts ready when you RSVP. For more information about Start Now!, or to apply for admission to ACC, please contact Student Recruitment and Outreach at acc.info@arapahoe.edu or 303.797.5637.
