Online Registration Instructions
Once you've met with an ACC Advisor who has processed your Dual Credit Tuition Voucher, you're ready to register! ACC uses Self-Service: Student Planning for course registration. Use the documents or video below to help you navigate this system:
Textbooks: buying, renting, or scholarships
Here are a few recommended options for obtaining your textbooks:
- Buy textbooks from the ACC bookstore in person or order from their website.
- Purchase textbooks from other websites like Amazon, Half.com, Barnes & Noble, or Abe Books. They usually offer new and used options.
- Rent textbooks from sites such as Chegg and College Book Renter.
TEXTBOOK SCHOLARSHIP: If you have financial need, please see Mrs. Wood for books available to be checked out for free or information on how to receive a scholarship to help pay for your textbook. The Leander Educational Excellence Foundation (LEEF) has generously set aside funds to support dual-credit students and have allowed us to start a small collection of books to lend to students.
Which courses will transfer?
ACC provides helpful information about courses that will transfer va their University Transfer & Equivalency Guide.
If the university you plan to attend cannot be found from the TCCNS searchable matrix or the university's website, it is best to contact their registrar's office to determine what will transfer (and what won't).
Where can I verify my course schedule or ACC grades?
On the ACC website, students can log in to Self-Service to view course registration, professor information, meeting time, etc. To view official grades, students must login to Online Services and access the Student Menu of services. Here, students can find their unofficial transcript, as well as order transcripts to be sent to colleges and universities.
How can I find out more about a professor before registering?
First, if there is a link provided on the ACC schedule listing, click on that to see what kind of information might be posted on their website and syllabus. Otherwise, you can also try Rate My Professor to get some insight from previous students' ratings of the professor.
How can I prepare for the US History STAAR Exam?
If you are taking US History through ACC, you are still expected to take and pass the US History STAAR exam as a graduation requirement. The test is offered three times a year: December, May, and July. For specific dates, contact Mrs. Wood or reference the above calendar.
To prepare for the exam, we encourage students to reference this US History facts book that summarizes important information to know. If you'd like a hard-copy of this book, please see Mrs. Wood.
