WHAT Is an integrated course?
An integrated course is a college-credit course in which CE students can enroll on a space-available basis without
registering through college credit. Normal CE registration procedures apply. These courses can be converted to
college credit later under prescribed conditions. Call the registration desk at 223.7542 for further information. All
integrated courses are designated as such in the course descriptions, for example: Integrated with college credit
ETWR 2374.

CAN I get the new ACC Student ID?
Continuing Education students that are enrolled in college-credit integrated sections are eligible for photo IDs and
can pick them up on any of the main campuses during the first week of classes.

If your class is full when you register, we will put you on a waiting list if requested, as long as all other sections are
full. If a seat becomes available or we open another section, we will contact you. Make sure your contact informa-
tion with us is current when you request to be placed on the waiting list.
