Hello ACC Pumas! 

Countdown to Fall 2022 and the start of classes...again – welcome to ACC! This message is being sent to you because you are enrolled in a fall 2022 course, and we are excited for you to be a part of our college! 

ACTION ITEM FOR Wednesday morning – August 17Know how your course will be offered! Do you need to log in and how will that work? Where is your in-person class? What the heck is D2L (Desire2Learn)? 

Please see instructions in this message to determine HOW, WHERE and WHEN the course you are enrolled in will meet. 

All courses offered by ACC should have course access details posted in Desire2Learn (D2L) as of Monday, August 22. CCCOnline courses will have D2L access on the first scheduled day of the class. Please read this entire message to determine the differences between ACC Online and CCC Online course offerings. 

How do I check how my courses will be offered? 

Go to Select myACC from the top menu. In myACC, go to Student Tab (across top), then to Student Schedule (on left side of screen), check your course schedule.  The course title will link to Desire2Learn (D2L). This will have information specific to your course. For more on how to read the Student Schedule, check out this resource

You may download the Navigate App and check your schedule via Navigate on your mobile device. Download links and learn how to use Navigate.  

Note the DATE the course starts. Some courses are accelerated and may not start until a date in September. Check the date and know when your course starts! 

Check out this helpful information on how to make sense of the abbreviations and codes on the course schedule. Double-check the Campus – which ACC location will your class meet? Sturm Castle Rock, Littleton, or Art & Design? 

Courses that are ONLINE may be offered by ACC or the Colorado Community College Online (CCC Online). ACCOnline is shown as AON for your campus and CCCOnline is shown as ACC CCC Online.  


Look here to see what it means to have a hybrid, remote or hyflex class. 

Courses in person will have a ROOM and a day and time. Example: Humanities (HUM 1015 – World Mythology) meets Wednesday nights, 5:30 – 8:30pm once a week in Main 3710 and starts September 8, 2022. While Fall semester starts the week of August 22nd, this class is accelerated and does not start until September 8th. I will not physically go to class until September 8th and will check D2L closer to September 8 for specific course instructions. Students can see meeting instructions in myACC Student Tab (across top) Student Schedule (on left side of screen), check your course schedule.  The course title will link to Desire2Learn (D2L). Locations where ACC in-person classes meet: 

Castle Rock buildings: ACR = Castle Rock Campus / Sturm Collaboration Campus at Castle Rock 

Littleton buildings: 

AA = Annex 

AD = Art and Design Center 

AM = Main Building 

AN = North Building 

CSB = Church Street Building 

ONLINE - Students may take online courses offered either by ACCOnline or CCCOnline. ACCOnline courses are taught by ACC instructors who know ACC degrees and certificates and support resources for students, they are listed as AON campus. CCCOnline courses are taught by instructors who are a part of the Colorado Community College System.  Either type of online courses is accessed via D2L by selecting the Course Access icon in myACC. A course that is ONLINE will not change to in person. You must log in and access the class per the instructor’s directions. Don’t wait and log in the first week of the class so you don’t miss anything.  

In the class schedule: AON ACC = ACC Online Class and ACC CCC Online = CCC Online Class 

There are other options of courses, but the majority of ACC offerings will be in person, remote or online. We do have additional courses and you can find these detailed course type descriptions and how to tell which is which by viewing our course schedules abbreviations and codes
