FAQ's

What is the deadline to register for classes?

Technically, ACC's deadline is three days before class starts. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND WAITING THIS LONG! There are many steps that need to be completed prior to registration so in order to ensure you don't encounter any holdups along the way, take care of these steps sooner rather than later!

Which textbooks do I need?

So how exactly do you know which textbook is needed for your ACC dual-credit course? You have a couple of options, outlined here on ACC's website.


Buy or Rent

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.
  • Talk to other Dual Credit students who may have purchased the book in the past - they may be willing to loan or sell to you


Scholarships

If you have financial need, please see Mrs. Wallace prior to making any rent/purchase decisions. The Leander Educational Excellence Foundation (LEEF) has generously set aside funds to support Dual Credit students in the form of textbook scholarships.
