Fall 2020 Update to Students

Email sent to all ACC students on Monday, August 3, 2020 by Dr. Lisa Matye Edwards, Vice President of Student Affairs

Hello ACC Community –

It has been quite the ride since March and now it is August!  Thank you for your patience and questions as ACC makes plans for our Fall 2020 academic term.  Welcome back to our continuing students and to our new students joining ACC – Welcome!  We are excited you chose ACC for your academic and career goals. 

Our goal is to continue to keep you updated with regular communications about Fall 2020.  Please continue to monitor the ACC Webpage and your student email for the latest updates. I am including some important updates in this email – please do not hesitate to reach out with questions!

FALL 2020 Important Information

  • Parking passes will not be needed for Fall 2020.  You will not have to purchase a parking pass and may park in ACC lots without one.  Please remember to park in ACC lots (parking and building maps can be found here).  Street parking is not controlled by ACC and may result in City of Littleton tickets if you do not follow the signage on the streets.
  • Please remember to check HOW your class will be offered for fall.  Any class with a building, room number will have on-campus, in person meetings.  Please visit the ACC Fall 2020 website for more details on how fall courses will meet.
  • You must wear a CDC approved face covering and bring your ACC ID if you come to any campus.  Please review ACC’s Wellbeing and Safety for more details.  Lanyards will beavailable for free at all campuses to make it easy to display your ACC ID.
    1. (1) If you do not currently have an ACC ID and are scheduled for classes that will require you to be on campus, please complete the Permanent Student ID Request Form available here.  Student IDs will be printed and mailed within two weeks.
       

      If you wish to get your student ID in-person, you may do so starting August 10 at Records & Enrollment Services, 2nd floor on the Littleton campus or at the front desk at Parker or Sturm Collaboration Campus.  Art & Design students – please watch your email for instruction specific to that building.  Please note, in order to maintain prior social distancing and your safety, getting a student ID on campus may take longer than usual.  Please plan ahead if you intend to come to campus for a student ID. 

    2. (2) If you do not have a mask or CDC approved face covering, we will have a limited supply available at no cost to students at the front doors.  If you feel you cannot wear a mask/face covering, please contact ACC disability [dot] access [at] arapahoe [dot] edu (subject: Mask-Face-Covering-Accommodation-Request) (Disability Access Services) to explore accommodation options.
  • Have you done your FAFSA?  If you have graduated from high school, you should complete a FAFSA.  Do NOT leave money on the table – you might be surprised at what grants and other free federal aid are available to you.  It is not too late – and there is free assistance in completing the form (including in Spanish). Visit the Financial Aid website for more details.
