Help with AC Connect Portal

AC Connect Portal links you to various services to enable you to be successful at Amarillo College. These services are provided to you by AC and other vendors to help you as a Student, Faculty or Staff. Our Single Sign-on Solution is not in place yet, so logging into each area is required. In some cases that login will work across multiple applications, such as the ones managed by Google. Logging into one area of WebAdvisor logs you into all areas of Webadvisor you have rights to. We hope this Help Guide assists you in navigating the new AC Connect Portal.

Screenshots have been provided of the different log in screens.
