Overall Rating:

ACC is a rip off. I live in Dripping Springs not very far at all from the Oak Hill location. I'm being charged an arm and a leg in "out of district" fees. Instead of paying a couple hundred dollars for classes I have to pay a couple thousand! Considering that all of the outlying area's of Austin are basically becoming suburbs of Austin, I find it ridiculous that I am forced to pay 10 times what an in district student would. A very broken and unfair system. Now as a single mom I'm struggling to find a way to pay for classes. Thanks for nothing ACC.

Welcome to highschool and a half.It’s very sad to watch ACC waste people’s limited opportunity and finances as well as the city and state’s resources.The staff is obviously undertrained and overloaded.The teaching staff is not of collegiate level in many cases. I’ve had professors admit they’re giving us the same worksheets they give their pre ap and AP high school students.They could barely handle the amount of kids 10 years ago, let alone now that they realIzed the cash cow they have.The school administration would be better run by crooks. Because at least they’d be competent. The campuses are run almost independently with absolutely no communication between them.Inside the actual divisions within the buildings, there is no communication. The advisors know absolutely nothing about financial aid and the financial aid people simply know nothing, not about the curriculum, not about their own job. .

Honestly his school is a waste of money. Their main priority is making money off you not your college success. I'm not sure where their spending the money because the tutors and teachers are mediocre. If you can avoid coming to this school please do.

Overall Rating:

Perhaps one of the most frustrating experiences with bureaucratic policy I have ever experienced. Not only is policy entirely inflexible, it often seems nonsensical. Great option if your only option is community college, but there are more affordable University-level programs available online that will give you better accreditation and jerk you around less. 2/10 - Would not attend again.

Overall Rating:

This is hands down the greatest college on the face of the earth. Not only did Austin CC fulfill my educational needs, but they provided an avenue of success for my future endeavors. The college has an impeccable urban campus, and the food is to die for. As an added bonus, the campus is minutes from downtown Austin, where the night life is never lacking. If there was an option for 6/5 stars, I would've selected it. Go Riverbats!
