FAQs about Our Courses

I want to enroll in a section that is full. How can I add this section?

If a section has reached the enrollment limit, you can add your name to the waitlist for the course via MyACC for Students. Should a seat open up, you’ll be one of the first people to be offered the opportunity to take that seat. Using the waitlist also benefits our department because we can see which courses and times have high demand in order to meet student demand.

Can I take any Communication Studies course to fulfill my degree requirements?

Check out our guide to selecting a course to help you decide which course is right for you.
