About

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/ELL 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, EL​L, 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 and must check-in and out at the AAC Welcome Desk to use any AAC services​. DMACC Student ID number (starts with 900 or 901) may be found on DMACC/DART ID card or at the Urban Student Services Office in Building 1, Room 101.​

*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 Services Office or Testing Center for a fee. The cost is $230 for unlimited AAC services per semester.
