ACC Super Saturday Registration Blitz
Press Release
Wednesday, December 13, 2017

For students who work and may not have time to test, register or apply for Financial Aid for college during the week, Alvin Community College is opening its doors on Saturday, January 6 for the Super Saturday Registration Blitz.

ACC staff members will be at the college from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Admissions Office to provide help for those wanting to take courses in the fall.

“This is a great opportunity for those students who are busy at home or work during the week and cannot make it to register,” said Marilyn Dement, ACC vice president of Student Services.

Spring registration is now open and will close on January 17. During the week, students can register at any of ACC’s three locations, the main campus, the University of Houston Clear Lake-Pearland campus and at Shadow Creek High School.

Several services will be offered including state-required testing to attend college. Students must register for testing by January 4 in order to take the exams on Saturday, January 6. Seats for testing fill quickly. The tests will be administered starting at 8:15 a.m.

Staff members with the Continuing Education and Workforce Development Department will be available for students who want to enroll in a career training program.

Those who need guidance on which courses to take can also visit with academic advisors who will be on hand. Advisors can visit with students to determine which classes will fit their needs and which degree plan is best suited for them.

Financial Aid staff members will be available to help students apply for assistance to help pay for their courses.

Students will also be able to pay for their classes, purchase their books, obtain a student ID and receive their parking pass.

Once students have finished testing and know which classes they want to take, they can then register for the 2018 spring semester.

Students who register prior to January 8 will not pay any late fee. From January 9-17 registration will include a late fee. Classes begin on January 16.

Students attending the Saturday event can register for the services they need starting at 8 a.m. at the Admissions Office.

Prospective students are encouraged to review the steps to get started prior to the event. Find the steps or to sign up for testing visit www.alvincollege.edu or e-mail advising@alvincollege.edu. For details call 281-756-3526.
