Admissions

We've simplified the process of applying for college with a straightforward online application. Completing the application takes a short time and is processed within 2-5 business days. Be sure to review the registration checklist that will assist you during the admissions process. An acceptance letter can be sent to your email address. You can apply for financial aid as well as the Colorado Opportunity Fund at the same time you apply for acceptance to Arapahoe Community College in Denver.

ACC has an open-door admissions policy for any student 17 and older. If you're a high school student, international student, home schooled student, a student who is 16 and under, or an adult learner, we'll do all we can to ensure your success.

Our students pursue coursework and degrees for transfer into university programs; career preparation and advancement; and personal fulfillment.
