ACA Classes at Cleveland Community College, Shelby, NC

ACA Classes

The Student Success Center coordinates all 'ACA' classes, or academic support classes, offered for degree credit. These classes are offered to assist you with time management skills, study skills, and transition skills to a four-year university. By taking one or more of these courses, you will learn more about campus resources, degree and career planning, and academic strategies to assist you in meeting your academic and personal goals. Although they are not required in all two-year degree programs, we highly recommend our students enroll in one or more of these courses in support of student success as soon as you begin at CCC!

The Student Guide to CCC introduces students to the resources, tools, and information available at Cleveland Community College. Much of the information in this guide is also found in greater detail in the Academic Bulletin & Student Handbook. This Student Guide supplements the information already published and online; it does not take the place of it.
