Step 1: Apply Online

  • Go to ACC's online application. click on the PURPLE "Apply Now" button, and create an Application Account (this is not your application), then proceed to the next steps found at the bottom of the page to start application.
  • Complete and submit the online application - be sure to specify Dual Credit as the basis of admission from the drop down options. (If you do not have a SS#, see Mrs. Wood to be assigned an alternate number.)
  • HINTS: Your "Primary reason" for attending is to "earn credits for transfer"; answer that "yes" you will transfer credits; and choose the North location.
  • NOTE: Dual credit students do not need to submit a transcript or bacterial meningitis vaccination documentation.

Step 2: Activate your ACCeID and ACCmail (must wait 24 hours after applying)

  • You should have received an email confirmation of your application submission, which included your ACCeID - SAVE THIS INFORMATION

  • View the Dual Credit Orientation video located here.
  • Print, review, and sign the Dual Credit Orientation Verification form located on that same page. Turn this in to Mrs. Wood (to her office or via email).

Step 4: Meet College Readiness Testing Requirements

  • Determine if you need to take the TSI Assessment (see this page for qualified exemption scores). If it is determined you are exempt from testing, you may skip to Step 5. See Mrs. Wood if you need help determining your status.
  • If you are not exempt with existing scores, you must complete the Pre-Assessment Activity (PAA) prior to taking the TSI Assessment. The PAA can be completed online here. (Sample of email confirmation)
  • At the end of the PAA, submit the Certificate of Completion survey; confirmation will then be emailed to you.
  • Once you have received the emailed Certificate of Completion for the TSI PAA submit this to Mrs. Wood - either directly to her office or via email (melissa.wood@leanderisd.org).
  • Next, sign up for a TSI Assessment administration; do this by clicking here to register for the TSI Test. You will not be admitted to testing if you have not completed Steps 1-3 and the PAA.

Note: It is the student's responsibility to notify Mrs. Wood via email if you receive testing accommodations (for 504 and Special Education students); once approved to take ACC courses, you must work through the Student Accessibility Services (SAS) office at ACC to be approved for accommodations in the college courses.

New Dual Credit students cannot move on to Steps 5-7 until TSI is met.

Step 6: Meet with an ACC Advisor

  • RETURNING STUDENTS: Although you aren't required to meet face to face with an advisor, your Enrollment Form must be signed and processed by an ACC Advisor before your hold is lifted and you're able to register.
  • NEW STUDENTS: Attend an Orientation Session at LHS (Mrs. Wood will assign you an appointment time based on your schedule) or schedule an appointment online here at the Cypress Creek campus with Lauren Thomas, our ACC Enrollment Specialist.
