  • Information for ITT Tech Students

    Thank you for your interest in ACC's Nursing Program. It's important to identify yourself as either a: • New Pre-Nursing Student - a student who had not started NU coursework, or, • Nursing Curriculum Student - a student who had started NU coursework. The Minimum Admission Requirements Checklist for New Pre-Nursing Students, and the Preliminary Evaluation Checklist for Nursing Curriculum Students (students previously in NU coursework) are listed as PDFs below. Please read through these materials carefully and review in detail. We've developed these items in an effort to hopefully eliminate as much confusion as possible. Here is a summary of key steps for Pre-Nursing students (you are considered a Pre-Nursing student until you are officially accepted into the Nursing Program):

    1. Online ACC Application
    The most important thing you can do is submit an application to ACC.  Here is the link: https://www.alamancecc.edu/admissions/.

    2. Placement Test Requirements
    Pre-Nursing students are required to complete placement testing. However, assuming you have existing college credits in math and English, you could be exempt. It is important for you to submit an official transcript and placement test scores from your previous school(s). An Admissions Counselor will evaluate the transcript(s) and determine if you are exempt from placement testing. Please allow 24-72 for the transcript evaluation. Our website also provides more information.

    3. Registering for Classes
    All new students are required to meet with an Admissions Counselor or Academic Advisor prior to registering for classes. To schedule an appointment with an Admissions Counselor, please call 336-506-4270 and the Student Success staff will assist you.

    4. Mandatory Information Session - required for New Pre-Nursing Students
    If you are considered a NEW Pre-Nursing student you are required to attend a Mandatory New Pre-Nursing Student Information Session, which is separate from the overall ACC New Student Orientation. Please contact 336-506-4270 and the Student Success staff will be happy to schedule you for the next available session.

    We hope this information is helpful!
