How the AAC Works
AAC Classes are Different
Academic Achievement Center classes are not online. Attendance is required at least once a week in the Academic Achievement Center in OCB 304.
AAC classes follow a self-instructional format with flexible scheduling. Because they do not meet on a set schedule, you will see "TBA" when you look at the meeting days and time in the online registration system. You can work on your class anytime during regular AAC hours. AAC classes require students to study independently with the assistance of instructors who are on duty; they do not offer formal lecture or private one-on-one tutoring.
During the first week of classes, students are required to attend an orientation session in OCB 304. Orientations are on a first-come, first-served basis and take approximately one hour. A JCCC student ID card is required for admission to the AAC.
AAC Course Requirements
To pass the 1 credit AAC courses (with a grade of C or P), you must complete the following:
- Hours: Complete a minimum of 20 study hours in the AAC
- Tests: Complete the required number of tests (usually 4 - 9).
- Notebook: Maintain and turn in a course notebook.
- Post-test: Take a post-test.
If you enroll in Individualized Study, a specific program will be designed for you. Your visits to the AAC must be spent on that program. You can't come in and study other subjects. This class is generally recommended only for students who have already taken one of the other AAC classes and would like to continue building their skills in that subject area.
