About Alamance Community College

Alamance Community College was founded in 1958. As one of the first organized community colleges in North Carolina, the Burlington-Alamance County Industrial Education Center (known as IEC) signified a change in the landscape of education. A half century later, ACC continues to reinvent itself to fit the demands of an ever-changing workplace and the needs of 21st century students. In its first year of operation, the College offered 15 programs, such as industrial chemistry, yarn and fabric analysis, loom fixing, and machine shop. By the 1970s, course offerings included computer systems, secretarial skills, drafting, and chemical technology. Flash forward to today’s College where a student body of 5,000-plus has the option of traditional technical courses as well as biotechnology, culinary technology, medical laboratory technology, and a host of university transfer courses. Today’s cutting-edge programs clearly reflect the newest career and job opportunities for our students.
