Known informally as ACCS (and pronounced as "access") this campus unit was made up of professional staff to provide a supportive environment for students, offer class scheduling and curriculum information, assist with decision making, and furnish information on time management, study skills, tutorial assistance, and career-related matters. In July 1998 the unit was formed as part of the merger of career services, testing, and academic counseling. The latter was formerly known as Student Academic Counseling Services or SACS. ACCS was dissolved in 2007 during a reorganization of Student Affairs. The Mastodon Advising Center (MAC) became part of the new Academic Success Center (ASC), while Career Services and Testing Services began reporting directly to the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.
