Take College Classes at your High School

Advanced College Credit (ACC)

ACC classes are college courses taken at your high school and taught by an approved high school instructor. To earn college credit for your ACC classes, you must register through CCC. ACC classes are $10 per credit, charged directly to you. If you are on free or reduced lunch, talk to your high school counselor to have your ACC fees waived. Check out the ACC Student Handbook for more information about being an ACC student!
