3 College Sophomore

Student Body: The student body has good hearted people although there isn't as much interaction between the student body. It's more like you just go to class, listen to the lecture and get out of class as fast as you can. Only when you are required to do group work is when I see social interaction.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The computer network at school is outstanding. We have state of the art computers that can run pretty much any program. This is very useful especially for me because I am in the engineering program and those programs require certain computer requirements.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The unique thing about my school is that they offer so many classes that can work around your schedule. There is pretty much always a class that will work with your schedule. On top of that the affordability and the free tutoring. The faculty is outstanding as well.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are many resources at Austin Community College for instance Austin Community College offers free tutoring 7 days out of the week. This is very useful for students that need the extra help in order to understand the material.

5 College Senior

Student Body: I'm continuously empressed by the student body at ACC. Most seem to be returning students, not straight out of high school, like me. And even the ones right out of high school exhibit a great level of maturity. The student activities office is very active and has a large presence in trying to make the student body a community. Everyone is friendly, but making friendships is not easy. Everyone seems to be focused on their studies so they can achieve their goals.

College Senior

Career Services: No post-grad services available. Associate and Certificate programs only.

College Freshman

Career Services: Because I am not getting a degree from ACC I will not be participating in the career part of the program.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: All in all, it's only community college so it's a good place to start, not to graduate from. But still there are kind and caring professors that are very helpful, they offer a wide variety of classes , registration and payment is quick and painless, workload only depends on how many courses you are enrolled in, and they have wonderful learning labs you can go to when it seems you can't understand whats going on in class.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's very cheap considering its community college and you definitely get what you pay for and a bit more. Sometimes its aggravating when im required to take remedial courses which means more money and time.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: Wii fi here is a little shabby. It's hard to have so many students on the network, but it needs definite improvement. It's slow most of the time.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: Free bus passes are extremely useful and a great asset for students. With a bus pass, there's no excuse to miss class.

5 Recent Alumnus

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! :)
