- Be officially admitted to ACC
- Complete placement-testing requirements
After completing the above requirements, an individual requesting Disability Services must:
- Make their disability known. An interview may be scheduled by contacting the Dean of Students;
- Provide disability documentation that meets standards set by Alpena Community College.

Food PantryFood Pantry Webpage
The ACC Student Food Pantry, located to the right of BTC 120, was created because we know that when students are worried about where their next meal is coming from, they can't focus on their studies. There are no rules or limitations for this pantry. Take what you need, but please don't abuse it. If you need further assistance, please visit the President's Office in BTC 125 or call Lisa at 989.358.7296.
