ACC Degree and Certificate Programs

Just because you are an employee doesn’t mean you can’t also be an ACC student. Explore the ACC website for information about earning an associate degree, obtaining college credits to transfer for a bachelor’s degree, or obtaining a specific career certificate.

Some ACC instructional department websites include job information related to that specific degree or certificate.

ACC Continuing Education (CE)

Continuing Education offers Assessment Services, Community Programs, Certificate Programs, Business & Industry skill courses, and courses related to health.

Other helpful resources are available as follows:

Informational Interviews

Informational interviews involve talking with people who are currently working in the field to gain a better understanding of an occupation or industry — and to build a network of contacts in that field. You may ask questions about the job function, the company/organization/department, and the career path.
