Campus Resources: Great libraries and student centers. There's no excuse not to get things done
on campus. Northridge campus has everything music related. The music school needs more funding though, they seem to be running out of equipment.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: As I stated before, I'm mainly in this major to take necessary prerequisites. However, I really know very little about the program, the department, or anything else. The little bit of counseling I've had wasn't very helpful, and I seemed to know more about my particular questions than the counselor did. The teachers I've met in this department I think are ok. However, one thing I'm not too fond of is the paper writing requirement in their science based classes. If I wanted to write papers, I'd have taken an English class.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: All of the above was fine. I've had good experiences with the classes I've taken online. I actually prefer online courses to having to drive across town to hope to find a parking spot, then sit in a class going over material I could just as easily do at home.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: When I've dealt with Financial aid, there is a high volume and a long wait. Usually, the people I've talked to were not very helpful. Also, I was turned down for aid except for yet even more student loans, and those were skimpy... apparently I've nearly hit my lending maximum... mostly because I've already got a degree. Some of my forms were also either lost or missing and I had to either redo them or resubmit them. This past semester I didn't even bother applying for financial aid because I knew I'd probably be turned down.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: I usually have no problem logging in, the network seems pretty fast and reliable, and when I've used on campus printing, I've not had any problems. I do wish they had more access to computers on campus, though.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: So far the resources I've used have not been many, but it is nice to know they are there if I need to. They have great libraries, free tutoring, free wifi, easy online access to your grades and your professor, and free computer access at all of their campuses.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Most everything is easy access and helpful, even down to the online classes. Also, I received a free bus pass along with the parking permit I purchased... way cool! However, the financial aid portion, at least for me, is difficult. I am in the process of taking prerequisites so that I can apply for programs in other schools and eventually change careers. Because I already have one Bachelors degree, finding aid to pay for my schooling is next to impossible, so for now, my costs are out of pocket. Ironically, one of the main reasons I'm wanting to change careers is so that I will make more money... currently, even with a degree, I am sitting right on the edge of poverty and am barely able to pay my bills every month in the field I am in. Also, it would be nice if there were more class times and days available for the courses that I must take.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The library on campus isn't bad, it is very easy to browsing around and find a book you want very quickly. The librarians are very friendly, they're always helpful, you can live chat with the librarians at home about the book you're looking for and ask them to hold it for you.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The wireless access is okay, sometimes it's very lagging and I had to log out and sign back in again.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I took a few online courses in the past, and after experiencing the difference between lecture courses and distance learning, I believe that distance learning does not allow the same kind of understanding and material retention that lecture courses do.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: Most of the students at ACC are sharing their time between work and school; because of this, it's likely that you will meet a variety of people but often they aren't as socially inclined as one would hope to experience in the typical college.

5 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is extremely reasonable--granted you are an in-district student--and the staff gives you every opportunity possible to make enrollment an easy process.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: Most of the professors realize that you have a life and often school is your commitment to education despite of an otherwise occupying schedule; as such they make an effort to help out students who truly put forth effort (most of the time).

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love ACC, especially the fact that they are eco friendly! I love to recycle! :)

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: So far I have had a good experience with this college. I am a computer IT major, and the selection of classes is good--relatively easy to get into the classes needed to complete the program.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I haven't experienced any difficulties with schedule or classes. I know before I start the semester what the schedule is and make sure I adjust my own schedule to fit. I am transferring to another Texas University and they are accepting all of my earned credits, except for the developmental classes, which makes sense.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: For a community college ACC is just fine. You can always have more, but the main purpose is education, and that is covered nicely. I have a place to sit, and fine professors to teach the subjects, it's up to me to make the most of it.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: For a community college ACC is fairly well equipped. They have a decent computer lab and library. Learning labs are available for virtually any subject, and the professors that I have had have all made themselves more than available if ever extra assistance was needed. Many of them are Phd's so the caliber of professor is pretty remarkable.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid process wasn't bad. I have received Pell Grants and that has helped make going back to school possible.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've really enjoyed my time at Austin Community College. As a "non-traditional" student I was a bit apprehensive of how I would be received by my younger classmates, but everyone has been really great, very accepting.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Theirs is a lot of social groups for the students enrolled at ACC

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: They have a variety different courses so it's always something that you are in interested in

College Junior

Career Services: I am not eligable to answer that seeing as how i'm only a freshman and am still four years away from graduation.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I personally didn't receive financial aid from my school, but the classes are very affordable and well worth every penny. I am only attending ACC right now to take care of my basics, and then I intend on transferring to a university in the spring.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Excellent always great teachers.I like my school. I don't have that typical college `pride' in it like other people have, but ACC is giving me an education, which is all that matters. I haven't really attended many events or school functions, but that's not why I'm here. As long as that diploma is on the horizon, I'm happy with my school experience.
