Start Here. GO ANYWHERE!

From ACC, you really can go anywhere! Whether you just graduated from high school and you’re looking for an affordable, quality education, or you’re thinking about going back to school to earn a degree or brush up on a few skills, Alpena Community College can help you gain the skills you need for the next step in your career.

Each year, thousands of students from Northeast Michigan and beyond attend Alpena Community College. Some are pursuing goals of enrichment, others are preparing to transfer to a university, and still others are training for a technical career. Their motives may be different, but the results are the same – a higher quality of life.

With campus in both Alpena, and Oscoda, ACC has been serving its community since 1952. With state-of the-art facilities, experienced faculty, and excellent student support programs, ACC is dedicated to helping students get the most out of their education.

ACC has over 70 programs to chose from. Transfer programs are designed for students intending to transfer credits to baccalaureate degree-granting institutions. Career programs provide students with the necessary skills and related knowledge to qualify for skilled, technical, and semi-professional positions in business, industry, and the allied health fields. General studies programs allow students that are not interested in a four-year degree an opportunity to receive educational experiences in a variety of subject-matter areas.

Small classes and highly qualified instructors provide an excellent foundation for a career or continued study. Attending a community college offers the opportunity to more clearly establish career goals and adjust to college studies. Because financial aid and academic support are readily available, ACC makes a college degree both affordable and attainable.

Wherever you see yourself in the future, ACC can help you get there! Plan on higher education. Plan on Alpena Community College!
