Academic Flexibility: Everything has been super convenient for me

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: My school is very flexible because students can pick and choose their classes that works best with their work schedule or their personal life. It all depends on the student in the end. I have not ran into any issues with my schedule because I go to school Monday through Thursday and on the weekends I work. I go to school in the morning after that I have the rest of the day to study or spend time with my friends and family.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Atlantic Cape Community College provides a large amount of academic flexibility to students taking classes around a part-time or full-time work schedule. Many courses are provided on many different days and at different times of day for convience, however many alternate classes are held on the main campus at Mays Landing. Students with very full workloads may want to choose an online class to earn extra college credits. Overall, it is pretty easy for anyone to find a class schedule that will work for them, and individuals that are encountering issues with choosing appropriate times can simply talk to an academic adviser during registration on campus to gain assistance.

When registering for classes, the problem that students encounter most is the amount of time it takes to register. The best option, if a complex work or activity schedule is not applicable, is to apply for classes online at the Atlantic Cape Web site. Students often struggle with the amount of classes available on smaller campuses, such as the Atlantic City or Cape May County campuses, as compared to the Mays Landing campus, which has the most students but is not convienent for some people to travel to.

Tips for Earning Credits
Attending ACCC part-time in high school is a great way to get started earning college credits.
Academic/Testing Requirements
No specific GPA is required to enter Atlantic Cape, but a placement test is required for those who placed lower that a 530 on math or English when taking the SATs.
Transferring Credits In & Out
Applying to transfer credits is a simple process that requires a form found on the school webpage. Follow up a transfer request with a phone call to the main campus, because transcripts often are not sent on time.
Work & Life Experience Credits
Atlantic Cape is partnered with some nearby schools to provide an opportunity to earn college credits while attending high school. While these credits are fairly simple to transfer, other credits, such as life or work experience, do not count toward classes or degrees.
Typical Session Length
A typical class lasts throughout a whole semester, such as fall or spring. A typical semester is 15 weeks long.
Class Style & Structure
Professors at Atlantic Cape Community College often begin their classes with a lecture or lesson, followed by an individual or group activity. In many courses, student discussion is encouraged, as well as group work. Quizzes and homework are very important in most classes because they make up a large part of the course grade.
Course Registration Process
Students can register for classes either online or at one of the Atlantic Cape campuses. Registration is held on specific days and often takes a long time for most students. Arriving early and having a large chunk of time available to wait is recommended.

Those students that do not have transportation can easily take public transport to and from any ACCC campus. The campuses offer a wide varitety of events and classes, so every student attending can find a niche and a group of friends very easily.
