4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are two main strengths for Austin Community College. The first is career training for technical (but not necessarily just tech) professions (e.g., emergency medical technician). The second is low cost prerequisite courses that transfer to any Texas public university.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Austin Community College has a highly unique atmosphere for a community college, as there are a remarkable number of PhD professors on staff. For approximately one-third the cost of a four-year University, students are still able to have a challenging and fulfilling education. In some cases, professors teach at an advanced level, it seems as though the student is taking a graduate-level course. This may make the class more challenging, however, the value the student receives for their investment of time and money is immeasurable. Also, there is a high population of adult learners, many of whom have full time jobs during the day, or may have complex schedules due to child-rearing responsibilities. ACC is desirable to many because of the flexibility provided in its' schedules, offering class schedules in the evenings and weekends, and even allowing a person to earn nearly all the requirements of their degree via distance learning, so they only have to visit the campus for testing. I would recommend Austin Community College to any young person or adult who seeks to advance their education beyond high school.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I'm taking my first class so I don't know yet. So far, the program I'm in has been helpful.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: For certificate programs like mine, the career placement and internships are offered at the program-level, not by the school or department.

4 College Senior

Student Body: Students are a mix of college age and older student looking for retraining.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The school is a great value for the money, and offers programs which lead to jobs. They work with the local business community to great programs to fill open jobs.

3 College Senior

Career Services: For certificate students like myself career services are at the program level - its not well developed yet, but its an issue the school is working on.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Its a community college, so students are focused on school and either full-time or part-time work. I'm not sure if there are school sports teams, but there is a mascot, R.B. the Riverbat. There are a few clubs and intramural sports leagues, but I just started, so I haven't had a chance to look into them. Also, I'm an older student so I'm expecting the clubs to be oriented to 20-something's.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: It was hard for me to juggle around my job and school work. Some days I would work from 5am-10am and then start driving to class at 11:15 am because of the distance to the certain campus I was attending.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would not choose to come to this school again, I felt like the professors I had a lot of them got off topic a lot and it was hard for me to stay completely focused through out the whole class. To me I felt like a lot of time was waisted but at least I got a year over with.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Classes range in sizes especially after withdraws, when talking to teachers I'm not the best at but many other students did and they seemed like they didn't have a problem getting the answer to their questions. I am a freshman though and so far these first round of classes are just a time waister for me I would rather already be studying for my major.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Since it is in the city of Austin there is GREAT opportunities for internships here.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial aid helped SO much! I didn't have to worry about books and it covered all of my tuition. I wouldn't have anything left over but for some school supplies but it did help take some loads off my shoulders.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I went to the Cypress Creek campus the first half of the semester and it was really nice everything was new and update I really like it there. But then for the second half of the semester I went to the Riverside campus the tables were messed up, they were scratched off from some of the students scraping it off. Rooms still had chalk boards and it was all out of date from the other campus I had previously went too. There wasn't a lot of street lights in the parking lot so it was very dark for night classes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Besides the inital office experience I enjoyed my classes.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I work full time so it was great to have come classes I could attend , they offer many evening classes. I am not sure if they will have the classes i need for my next semester.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: THis semester I took sociology and English the classes were small due to members of the lass dropping out. MY profressors had the experience and I enjoyed the classes. The Sociology class required a lot of in class discussion and reading outside of class. I also saved money with this class and had a wide range of discussions because my teacher made to make the learning diverse. In English I had quite the practice as well as support with the number of papers completed. We also read a number of different articles that where well versed in different areas so that we can grasp a understanding of different rhetoric arguments.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: There are a number of different groups to join depending on your cause, the groups are more so just trying to get students to interact with eachother. In my personal opinion there is not a lot of in depth controversial topics, groups or discussions on campus to remove stereotypes and biases we may have about eachother. Those types of groups are needed most. I am at a smalller campus,and that could contribute to the reasons why there aren't many.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: IT's important to apply for financial aid early , my classes were not to expensive this term so I didn't find them to expensive. I had some issues with getting my financial aid initial because I continued to call and it wasn't explained to me that I had to input my major differently. I didn't apply for any scholarships through the shool,and after the financial aid was approved the process was fairly simple.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I had no problem with the teaching methods . College is all about time management so at times I did struggle with time between work and school which is unrelated to the scheduling of my classes. Registration was a bit confusing because I was not able to get what I need in the front office, I got what I needed from enrolling online with help from family. IT was fairly easy to sign up on line,and there are a number of study programs. The teacher's also had one on one time often if needed.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The teachers I had this semester were absolutely amazing, they were there to help during the hours they stated. I enjoyed the material I learned,and tutoring if needed. THe front office wasn't very helpful with signing up for the classes, or receiving help on signingup for classes. I will give them a good recommendation due to the teachers I had.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: My experience here at Austin community college has been great I really wouldn't of made a better decision of coming here.
