Credit Advancement courses permit students to prove mastery in units, allowing them to move past units in which they are proficient and concentrate on units in which they need additional work. Successful completion of a Credit Advancement course allows students to move forward into the next course in the sequence of that content area. All ACCESS courses are free to students enrolled in Alabama public schools and on a fee basis for non-public school students. See your school counselor to register. Please note that ACCESS Credit Advancement courses are not approved by the NCAA for eligibility purposes.
