IMPORTANT THINGS TO CONSIDER:
ACC is a college and not McCallum High School. We only facilitate the Dual Credit process. Make sure that you understand that you will be expected to produce college level work. Decisions and actions made now, which include dropping a class or failing a class, may impact your ability to receive financial aide with ACC in the future.
Students are responsible for how well they do in the class.
Students are responsible for registering themselves and for textbooks.
We CANNOT register or drop a student from a class.
We CANNOT see how students are doing in a class.
We do NOT have access to your ACC transcript.
Students are responsible for having their ACC transcript sent to McCallum's registrar once the student’s class is complete
Credit for ACC classes is only awarded to students who have their ACC transcript sent to McCallum.
