Jacqui - 3/5/2015
Degree: Surgical Technician
Graduation Year: 2015
"My experiences with ACC have varied between feeling neglected by administration to feeling loved and nurtured by the instructors. While figuring out which prerequisites are accepted and what credits from previous schooling are transferable is highly frustrating, the classes and their instructors makes up for it completely. When I first enrolled at ACC, I thought I had already been accepted into my program, but when I had finished my prerequisites, I had found out that the program itself had a separate application process, and then had a year long wait list to which I was added ONLY upon completion of a whole other set of requirements, such as immunizations, acquiring health insurance, drug screening, a physical, and so on. Thus, when I had set out on my journey to become a surgical technologist, I had mapped out a timeline and made plans for work and finances only to find out half way through that I was nowhere near finished. Finally when I got accepted into the program and I got to actually start my program classes, I was overly pleased with my instructors and the curriculum to the point where it all made up for the wait and confusion. Now I am thrilled and can't wait until I get to do something that I love for the rest of my life. I made the right choice to not give up and to stick with ACC."

Degree: Health Education
Graduation Year: 2017
"There is a negative association with community colleges, but ACC should not be put in the same category. Like any other university there are people that do not want to learn, the professors notice. If you have an interest in the class the professors make sure that you receive the knowledge you need to succeed. There are so many things to love about this school- There are different locations, so many different people to meet, and this school is made for you to have an outside life. This is the right place to go if you don't know your major or have decided to change your career."

Degree: Personal Training
Graduation Year: 2015
"I enrolled in a 1 year (Personal Training Certificate) program after getting my Bachelor's degree at Texas State University in 2010. I wanted to branch out and get more involved in the fitness industry, and ACC had a perfect program. The professors are amazing, and the different campuses are wonderful. The only complaint I have is the constant issues with the financial aid department."

Rachel Mae - 8/28/2014
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016
"I started to attend Austin Community College after I graduated high school, thinking it was like high school. Majority of the homework was optional, therefore, I did not really focus on it. Professors weren't as strict on attendance like high school teachers, so I was often late to class. I would still take notes, but I would never read out of the textbooks, nor would I study. I truly believed I could ace my exams by just re-reading through my notes. Later that semester, I realized how poor my grades were and started to stress out. I felt embarrassed to even ask my professors for additional help, but they advised me to get tutoring during their office hours. They would even work with your schedule and work every little step with you until you were finally confident enough to do the problems yourself. I spent several hours a week and realized that college is nothing like high school; you have to actually study from your textbook and do additional assignments if you want to be successful in that course. The professors at Austin Community College are willing to help you and they definitely learn their students strengths and weaknesses, which helps them work with individuals. After my first semester of college, I try to attend tutoring classes and attempt every optional assignment. College is definitely way different than high school, but it is worth it!"

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015
"My experience at Austin Community College has its ups and downs. For instance I hate how if your not living in Austin you are considered out-of-district, which means more fees. Even when you take classes in Austin it's still considered out-of-district which I really dislike because where I live the college doesn't offer but a few course classes, you have no choice but to drive to Austin or take distance learning classes. The town where I attend college doesn't have a counselor so if you need to speak with a counselor you have to speak with one in Austin. I can say that my counselor in Austin is very helpful over the phone and in person. Wish A.C.C offered more classes in Fredericksburg!"

MB - 8/9/2014
Degree: Video Game Design
Graduation Year: 2015
"Video Game Design & Development degree program at ACC is an amazing degree program. The professors are industry veterans who take an active interest their their students. Students work with industry tools to create games and learn the development process. We learn to work on solo projects as well in a team. All of the work we do will later be used on our portfolios to help us get a job. If you life in the Austin, TX area and are interested in making games, this program is for you."
