5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I'm studying Music Business, Performance, and Technology. We have very professional feeling facilities and all of the professors have or are still working in the profession that their class focuses around so they are very knowledgeable in their area of study.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Everything regarding the classes and class work is great!

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Online classes with minimum campus visits are great for a creative writing major. It allows me to focus almost entirely on reading, then writing, which serves as a great insight into the life of my chosen career path.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: My professors are very helpful, knowledgeable, and use class formats that fit very well with my personality. The curriculum is of the highest quality. It allows me to fulfill the goal of college, which is to expand myself. Once a student has been initially admitted, it's easy to find and register for sections online. My only complaint is that this convenience is neutralized for Early College Start students, who have to drive to a campus before every semester, in order to remove an automatically placed hold on their account by submitting a new hard copy form with the names of the free classes to be taken. Not only does this form have to be signed by an academic adviser, but to take more than two free classes in a semester, another form must be submitted and signed by the Dean of Student Services. Like most colleges, the workload is determined by a combination of which classes you take and which instructors you take them from. I choose to take the maximum number of classes that I feel I'll be able to enjoy while earning an "A" in all of them. Though some may still consider online classes to be a "special study option", it's just as common as classroom learning at Austin Community College. This format works very well for me, as distance learning always has.

Academic Experience: This is my first semester so I don't know much about it, but so far it's going great
