Fall Specialized 2018.pdf
*The URBAN AAC is closed when classes are not in session.
The URBAN AAC will close at 2 PM on Thursday, December 13, 2018 for the WINTER BREAK and will reopen at 8:30 AM on Monday, January 7, 2019. This includes Computer Lab 202 and 218.
The Urban Campus Academic Achievement Center (AAC) offers academic and support services to students who fall into three general categories - those enrolled in regular DMACC credit courses, HiSET/ESL non-credit courses and those who need to complete pre-admission requirements or brush up before enrolling in college courses. DMACC students who are preparing to take job entry examinations may also use the labs.
Any regular DMACC college student may visit our open labs and supplement their studies with general or specific instruction in the following courses/subjects: reading, math, accounting, business, science, English, writing, HiSET, ESL, speech/presentation and computer applications. Students need to bring their textbooks, assignment sheets, study aides, and their questions to get help from lab instructors and/or peer-tutors.
All students will need to know their DMACC Student ID to check-in and out at the AAC Welcome Desk. DMACC Student ID (900#’s) may be found on DMACC One cards or at the URBAN Student Life Office in Building 1, Room 101.
*Effective Summer 2017, all non-DMACC enrolled students (this includes all former DMACC students and visitors from other secondary and higher educational institutions) who wish to use AAC services will be required to register with the Student Life Office or Testing Center for a fee. The cost is $230 for unlimited AAC services per semester.
Students, faculty, and guests are asked to turn off or silence all personal cellphones in the AAC. Please step out into the hallways if receiving and/or taking any phone calls. Anyone not in compliant with this policy may be asked to leave the AAC.
All drinks brought into the AAC must be in closed containers to prevent any spillage. A drinking fountain is located directly outside of the AAC for those who want to refill their water bottles. Food in the AAC should be limited to small snack items. Students with full meals are encouraged to eat in the Student Lounge.
Children are not allowed in the AAC.
