4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: ACC will work with your schedule and has many available people helping you to transfer to a school of your choosing. They also help with graduating plans and if you do not get accepted to the school that you want to transfer to they are more than welcome to help you get back to ACC. They will go over what you need to do and most importantly the teachers will help you as well. If you need a resume they are more than welcome to fill one out for you.

Student Body: The student body at ACC did try to encourage people to come out and enjoy all the festivities. They only did so little and barely went out themselves to go and get people involved with the school. It seemed like they also had their own lounges and students were more than welcome to come in but so little did. Overall, I do like the effort that the student body put in to make sure that everyone was involved in all the activities and festivities.

Campus Resources: There isnt a real need for a personal computer. All campuses have a computer lab and a library that has additional computers. Printing is limited to "15" pages a day but no one ever said anything if one printed more. Internet was always available and fast. Computers were up to date with people to assist you with any problems or inquiries.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: I wasn't too sure about online classes to begin with. I needed an easy class to fill in for my semester and decided an online class would be just that. I did some research and found a class with an instructor that didn't require testing to be done in a testing center. I had a weekly folder with a weekly assignment and reading to do. Assignments varied between watching a video and taking a quiz to a couple 750 word essays. I had two exams that where done online. Seemed easy but the exams where timed and if you didn't study before hand then you wouldnt be able to look up every question.

Academic Experience: The sonography program at ACC is one of the best in the state. Selection criteria is very strict and they only accept about 15 to 30 students a year. It is a highly competitive program but is well worth the effort.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Scool has an excellent tutor prgram and online registration process. One big issue I have is that the books used for the courses can be pretty riduculous. I have had several classes that required books only available at ACC and where just pages in plastic wrap. These "books" couldn't be sold back and where around $150. Some professors require students to take test in a testing center outside of class hours. This can be a hassle since it requires extra time and sometimes the testing center is on a waiting list.

Online Courses: Online courses are pretty easy but it is a lot of work. You have to make sure you keep up with your professor and the online work. If you don't get online or you just forget, it's very easy to fall behind. You can email your professor for the online course, they're usually very helpful. I personally prefer the classroom experience. I feel like I learn better in a classroom than sitting in front of a computer.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Make sure you stay on task with deadlines as far as scholarships applications and grants go. It is easy to apply for financial aid and since tuition is relatively low, especially for in district students, then financial aid is a huge help.

Academic Experience: The experience at this community college is that of a typical 4-year university but without the student life.

4 College Senior

Student Body: As of right now my school consists of many cultures and ethnicities. Its an amazing feeling getting to learn about different people and cultures from all over the world. Being away from your country is definitely a hard thing to overcome especially going to school and taking care of yourself. The people here are getting a wonderful education and also creating lasting memories on this beautiful campus.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: Online courses can be a little nerve racking at first but once i got started the online professor was so helpful and suprisingly the workload was not too difficult and didn't differ from an actual classroom course. Although an online course may sound very self oriented that is not the case various message boards and forums with other students are encouraged and can give you another students perspective on the assigned work when confused. By the end of the course my study skills had enhanced completely as did my time management skills.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Computer labs are small, the internet is slow and can block some sites that are required for that class subject but printing/scanning is great. I would say that bringing a personal computer would be a plus, comparing to using the school's computers

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Academically the staff at ACC was good, the tutoring center us very helpful; but there are times where you have teachers who are horrible. I had one teacher who told that this was one of his 3 jobs, and he did not care for the class, as most of his focus was in his photography job (this was a physics class).

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: All of my professors have been very involved this semester. Each of them have been very diligent about replying to my personal emails and all of them have been very helpful in helping me to succeed this semester and reach my goals.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The campus has several resources for studying. They have an excellent learning lab and the librarians are also very helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Austin Community College has a great curriculum. I'm very happy with all of my professors and my tuition is well worth my money. However, i find it a bit ridiculous that since i switched my major i am now unable to receive financial assistance.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am a dance major and the dance classes are great! They work with dancers of any level and are very supportive.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: We have computer centers at each campus that offer free printing and internet use.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: ACC has classes at all different times and days. Plus, they have tons of online classes.

5 College Senior

Career Services: Austin Community College has been great in all of their student service areas.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: There really aren't that many classes with a lot of open availability. Usually if you need a certain class and can't work it in with your other classes you'll have to take that same class at another campus just to get everything done on time. Also certain campuses don't offer some courses at all which sucks when you'd have to drive at least 45 min just to take a couple different classes.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: It'd make everyone's lives a little easier if everything on our test reviews was from actual class discussion. Also test review days do wonder for the overall class grades.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Always very helpful. people in computer lab will sit down with you and help you. Same as librarians.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Everything is great. All of nmy proffessors have been amazing. I have actually learned as to where in high school I just remembered for the test and it was gone.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: Very diverse. I had students in my class from fresh out of high school to people way out of high school. diversity is amazing In one class I had people from 5 different countries.
