Starting college should be simple, accessible, and all about preparing for success, but sometimes you need a little extra support to make sure the journey is really just that easy. Austin Community College institutes provide a smoother route to your goals by eliminating the guesswork to getting started. Institutes are specialized learning communities with a full-time block of classes starting each fall and covering three semesters.
Institutes have been designed with the first-year college student in mind, especially those with little or no previous college credit, but other students are welcome to enroll. All students must commit to the full course load that’s scheduled each semester.
