ACC is offering in-person courses, remote, virtual and online courses. All of these options are explained in detail below and how you can identify the type of course in the course schedule. Instructors will provide information for specific classes in D2L (Desire2Learn) prior to the start of class. You should register for the class being taught the way that works best for you.
Where do I start?
- Spring registration will open November 2nd. Make an appointment with your advisor to discuss the courses you should take in your degree / certificate plan.
- Log in to Navigate and start mapping out your schedule. Confirm that the way your courses will be delivered will work for your needs. Check out this Navigate step-by-step instruction video. If you find that a class will not work for you after you register, you can switch to a different section. Do this as soon as possible to guarantee your spot in your preferred course option.
- Make a plan to pay your tuition.
- Enroll in a payment plan.
- Submit a 2021-2022 FAFSA. Check myACC for any needed documentation and to confirm you have been awarded. If you have not yet done your FAFSA – do it TODAY. The FAFSA priority deadline was March 1, 2021. You should complete the FAFSA as soon as possible. It is recommended to start a payment plan. When and if your aid is awarded, it will be refunded to you. See Financial Aid for assistance and details. (The Spring '22 FAFSA is the 2021-2022 application.)

Safety and COVID-19 Response
When you to arrive on campus, you will notice many changes have taken place in order to ensure the safety, health and well-being guidelines recommended by the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment, the Center for Disease Control, Tri-County Health Department, the Governor’s Office, and other state and local experts.
Please review ACC Information and Response on COVID-19 Page
Wearing a Mask / Facial Covering
The CDC reports that the use of masks, even for fully vaccinated people (fully vaccinated is 2 weeks after a 2nd dose), helps slow the spread of COVID-19. Masks are designed to contain respiratory droplets and particles. They also provide some protection from particles expelled by others. In consideration of CDC recommendations regarding the continuing spread and infectious nature of the COVID Delta variant, we strongly believe that masking is a best practice in our layered strategy to preserve the integrity of in-person instructional delivery and services for our students.
ACC provides disposable masks to students, employees and visitors on all campuses. Gators and masks with exhalation valves or vents are not approved for inside campus buildings.
ACC Littleton campus requires protective masks or face coverings in all indoor areas. This applies to students, employees, members of the community, visitors, and contractors who come to the Littleton Campus There are exemptions for students and staff who wish to request a disability-related accommodation. See Disability Mask Accommodations below
Parker Campus and Sturm Collaboration Campus
ACC Parker Campus and Sturm Collaboration Campus requires protective masks or face coverings in all indoor areas. This applies to students, employees, members of the community, visitors and contractors who come to our Campuses in Douglas County. There are exemptions for those who wish to request a disability-related accommodation or an exemption pursuant to the new Douglas County Public Health Order. See Disability Mask Accommodations or Douglas County Public Health Order in the FAQ section below.
Contact our Dean of Students Office (askhr [at] arapahoe [dot] edu (HR) for employees) to request an exemption based due to disability or health issue.
Vaccinations are strongly encouraged but not required.

ACC has installed plexiglass barriers in areas where students and staff frequently interact.
Ongoing Monitoring of Guidance from Health Organizations
As we continue to navigate COVID-19, CCCS presidents and executive staff, and ACC key personnel talk daily to review current status and discuss plans for moving forward in light of new information and/or directives from the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment, the Center for Disease Control, Tri-County Health Department, the Governor’s Office, and other state and local experts.
Your safety is our priority. If we determine it is no longer in the best interest for the safety of the ACC community to keep our campuses open, we will implement plans to finish the semester remotely.
In the case of weather delays or closures for in-person classes, students will be notified by text, email and through the ACC Alert app.
We know you have many questions about the Spring semester. We're here to help. Read our frequently asked questions.
How will courses be offered?
We are offering Spring 2022 courses:
- On Campus
- Remote Real Time
- Remote Any Time
Check out the table above to learn more about each offering type and decide which works for you.
What is ACC Doing for Safety and Well-being?
We are continuously monitoring and discussing the best possible options to keep our community safe, while ensuring quality education for our students. We installed plexiglass partitions around campus, provide sanitizing and cleaning products, increased our cleaning protocols, strongly recommend vaccination, and continue to update our procedures based on the latest recommendations.
I Don't Want to Wear A Mask. What are my Options?
A mask is required in indoor spaces at all ACC campuses.
Students attending classes at the Parker Campus or Sturm Collaboration Campus can submit an exemption pursuant to the Douglas County Public Health Order.
Any student wishing to request a disability-related accommodation in connection with the ACC Mask Policy should contact Brian Grewe in Disability Access Services by phone at 303.797.5610 or by email brian [dot] grewe [at] arapahoe [dot] edu.
If a student has a personal health condition that prevents them from wearing a mask/facial covering in alignment with public health orders and no other form of personal protective covering or equipment is suitable based on their disability or health condition, the student will need to contact Disability Access Services (DAS) to discuss the process of providing medical documentation or discussing the inability to wear a mask.
The student will be asked to provide DAS with documentation written by a licensed professional about their disability that:
- Verifies that the individual meets the ADA definition of disability (i.e., has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities),
- Explains the reasons why a mask exemption is needed,
- Shows the relationship between the individual's disability and the need for the requested mask accommodation.
The documentation will be reviewed by the DAS Director and the Dean of Students. If this accommodation is granted, then DAS will then provide the student with a full-face shield that must be work while on any of the ACC Campuses. Wearing the face shield is not optional. The student will also receive a mask exemption card on a yellow lanyard card. Students can wear the lanyard card while on campus. Wearing yellow lanyard is optional as we will not require students to disclose their disability status. If students are not wearing the lanyard, they may be asked if they have received permission to not wear a mask before entering a college facility.
Mask-related accommodations available to students taking ACC Concurrent Enrollment classes on a high school campus may be subject to different guidelines as a result of differences in health, safety, and education requirements for high schools.
Other Examples of reasonable accommodations for students with a mask accommodation
Remote / Virtual Options
- Allow the student to take courses that are offered online.
- Offer Student Services appointments by telephone or video call for a student. This includes Advising, DAS, Financial Aid, ACC tutoring, and a number of other services and supports.
- Inform the student of online tutoring such as TutorMe.
Douglas County Public Health Order
An exemption pursuant to the Douglas County Public Health Order applies to the Parker Campus and Sturm Collaboration Campus locations only. The order allows certain individuals to be exempted from requirements to wear a Face Covering within Douglas County. If any individual aged 18 or older or parent or guardian of a child, may request to be exempted from the requirement to wear a Face Covering due to the negative impact on that individual’s physical and/or mental health.
Students may call the Dean of Students office at 303.797.5730 with any questions. Employees ACCaskHR [at] arapahoe [dot] edu (contact ACC HR) with any questions.
Is there Academic Support and Tutoring?
Of course. Student success is our first priority. Check out the webpage for the service you need to schedule an appointment.
Why do online courses cost more?
When the Colorado Community College System originally developed online courses, the costs reflected the online technology to teach effectively online and the learning management system. This resulted in tuition per credit costs that were (and continue to be) higher than in person course tuition. The higher tuition supports the technology infrastructure needed to offer quality online education.
Why Can't I See my Classes in D2L?
D2L courses become fully available the first day of class. You will be able to view class information in D2L a week prior to the start of your class. Please use Detailed Schedule under the Registration Tools in myACC to confirm your schedule and plan to login to D2L on the start date for each of your classes.

Why do I have to pay the Health & Wellness Fee?
The Health and Wellness fee is a $9.85 per semester, student fee that supports the Fitness Center and mental health counseling available through ACC. This fee was a student led initiative in 2013 as the Fitness Center was previous only available for paying members, and ACC only had limited mental health counseling for students. Regardless of a student’s ability to access our campuses, these services are still available for all students. Students can make a confidential phone or virtual appointment with a licensed mental health therapist by calling the ACC Dean of Students Office at 303.797.5730 or email acc [dot] dos [at] arapahoe [dot] edu. The Fitness Center is open and they have created several online resources for students to access to support at-home wellness. If you have questions, contact the Fitness Center by calling 303.797.5850.
Why do I have to pay the student activity fee?
The Student Activity fee is $4.25 per credit hour, with a maximum fee of $51.00 (12 credits). This fee is used exclusively to fund student activities and events, student clubs and organizations, and other student-led initiatives at ACC. The Student Life Office will be providing a variety of activities over the course of the semester to keep you engaged and help you stay connected. Students will also have the ability to be part of students clubs and organizations even if they are unable to meet in-person. The weekly Monday Morning To Do email, sent to all students, will promote these opportunities. We also encourage you to check out the online calendar on ACC’s website, which is frequently updated. For more information, contact 303.797.5668 or student [dot] life [at] arapahoe [dot] edu
