Academic Achievement Center (AAC)

The AAC, located in OCB 304, is a resource for any JCCC student who needs help with class material. While other JCCC resource centers focus on a specific content area (such as writing or math), the AAC works with you to improve your ability and readiness to learn.


AAC Classes

The AAC offers classes in basic skills essential for college success. For most courses, you are required to spend a minimum number of hours studying in the center, pass a minimum number of tests, complete a course notebook and take a post-test.

Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-8 p.m.
Friday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
Saturday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
Sunday, closed.
