PRESIDENT’S EARLY REGISTRATION PROMOTIONAL INCENTIVE: Approximately one month prior to the beginning of each quarter, the President of ACCT may announce the “President’s Early Registration Promotional Incentive” opportunity available to all ACCT students who have already attended courses at ACCT. For the one week designated by the President, students who have already enrolled and are attending ACCT must register for their coursework for the upcoming academic term during this week and will receive the opportunity to not only register for his/her coursework for the upcoming academic term, but during this designated week, as the student registers, he/she will also have their Academic Resources Fee and their Registration Fee waived for the upcoming term for registering for their coursework early. The “President’s Early Registration Promotional Incentive” opportunity allows students who register early the opportunity to have of their academic fees owed to the institution waived. This incentive is open to all students at ACCT who have an approved payment plan and have a zero balance owed the institution at the time of registration. This incentive affects only the “President’s Early Registration Promotional Incentive” and there is no waiving of tuition at ACCT for students participating in this program. The “President’s Early Registration Promotional Incentive” is not available to students who have not yet matriculated. Thus, a student must have attended at least one academic term at ACCT to be eligible for the opportunity to participate in the “President’s Early Registration Promotional Incentive.”
If a student has a question about the “President’s Early Registration Promotional Incentive” and/or wants to participate in the promotion, the student should contact Ernesto Ragunton, Director of Student Financial Services.
