Find out what classes you need to graduate!

Did you know that you have access 24/7 to a tool that will help you figure out exactly which classes you need to complete your degree program and graduate?

It's called your Academic Evaluation and you can check your progress any time on MyAACC following these step-by-step instructions:

If you have any developmental requirements (reading, writing & math), you'll want to complete those ASAP!  If you see "Required" next to any of these courses, you'll need to get started with those. Contact me if you're not sure where to start with your developmental coursework.

If a credit course requirement has been completed, you will see the semester, the grade, and the number of credits for that course.  If you still need to complete a course, it will indicate "1 course needed."  

A course you are taking or one for which you are registered, will be noted by (IP) for "in progress."

Steps for Success:
  1. Evaluate your program progress to create a list of the courses you still need to graduate.
  2. Determine which classes to take in Winter & Spring
  3. Register for Classes (Here are instructions for how to get yourself registered)
Want some help with this process?  E-mail janagiel@aacc.edu from your MyAACC email address with a list of courses you're planning to take for next semester.  I'll check your options to make sure you're on the right track!

Not ready to do this on your own, schedule an advising appointment as soon as possible.  There are just a few appointments left before winter break!
