Talk Directly to an Advisor Through 1-on-1 Program

Austin Community College is opening its ACC 1-on-1 hotline to assist prospective, current, and former students with questions about classes, registration, and getting started at the college.

From July 15-31, individuals can speak directly with an advisor by calling a dedicated phone number or sending an email. Call (512) 223.7747 or email ACC1on1@austincc.edu. More information is available at austincc.edu/getstarted.

The hotline is open to anyone interested in college information.

Registration is open for all those wishing to take classes this fall. In-district tuition is $67 per credit hour, making ACC the most affordable college education in the area. The fall semester starts Monday, Aug. 26.

The college offers more than 100 areas of study. In recent semesters, ACC has expanded career and technical training in high-demand fields such as architectural and engineering computer aided design, culinary arts, biotechnology, real estate, automotive technology, and more.

ACC has an open-door admissions policy, with everyone who meets eligibility criteria encouraged to enroll.
