The Alabama Community College System (ACCS) is Alabama’s gateway to world-class, affordable education and technical training for the necessary skills to compete in a constantly evolving workforce. The system consists of 24 community and technical colleges, including the Alabama Technology Institute, and Marion Military Institute – one of five junior military colleges in the nation. The Alabama Technology Network is a part of the ACCS and the Manufacturing Extension Partnership.
High school students and adult learners alike benefit from the various certificates, credentials and degree programs available through ACCS.
Tuition at Alabama’s community colleges is less than half the cost for the same core, academic courses as those taught at four-year universities in the state. More than 168,000 people choose to study through ACCS each year.
ACCS is governed by the Alabama Community College System Board of Trustees.
