Juniors and Seniors, you can start earning college credit before graduating from high school. Austin Community College enrolls eligible high school students through the Early College Start program, allowing them to take up to two college courses per semester while still in high school. Courses may be taken at any ACC campus, ACC center, online, or at your high school campus if available.
