Austin Community College is opening its ACC 1-on-1 hotline to help prospective students get started on college.
The program runs Oct. 14 through Nov. 8. Individuals can get rapid assistance from an advisor – even before filling out the admissions application – by calling the dedicated phone number (512.223.7747) or sending an email (ACC1on1@austincc.edu). More information is available at austincc.edu/getstarted.
“This is a great tool to connect more Central Texans to the training they need for the jobs that are here now and coming soon,” says Drew Scheberle, senior vice president for education and talent development at the Austin Chamber of Commerce.
ACC offers more than 100 areas of study in high-demand fields such as nursing and biotechnology; the college also is a leader in university transfer. The cost of tuition, $67 per credit hour, is 74 percent lower than the average for area public universities.
Spring registration is under way for current and former students, and new student registration begins Nov. 4. ACC has an open-door admissions policy, with everyone who meets eligibility criteria encouraged to enroll.
“ACC 1-on-1 can guide students through the application and registration process and provide immediate answers to your questions,” says Patty Behr, director of enrollment management. “Whether you want to return to school or are just beginning your college career, ACC has resources that can help you get in the door, successfully earn a degree or certificate, and get into the workforce.”
