Planning for ACC’s proposed Free Tuition Program continues. After first hearing about the proposal during a Board Work Session in January 2024 and then getting an update at the February Work Session, the Board of Trustees has asked for a deeper look at how a program like this could happen at ACC, including its initial implementation and opportunities to expand.

Chancellor Dr. Russell Lowery-Hart formed a series of workgroups to conduct due diligence in our planning. Seven teams were formed to closely examine and plan through various stages of implementation. 

Members within each group are made up of stakeholders from various departments, divisions, and offices of the college. 

Learn more about these workgroups, including who serves on the workgroup and the priority efforts and steps they’ve identified, by clicking on the links below. Links will be added as information is provided by the workgroups.
