Degrees

Alpena Community College offers courses which are equivalent in content and quality to freshman and sophomore courses at four-year colleges and universities. Students can complete programs of study preparing them to transfer to a four-year institution or to seek immediate employment. Those seeking personal enrichment or new or updated job skills, as well as visiting students from other colleges are welcome at ACC. 

ACC grants the following degrees: Associate in Arts (AA), Associate in Science (AS), Associate in Applied Science (AAS), and Associate in General Studies (AGS). Non-degree programs lead to a Certificate of Achievement (C).
