In order to view your progress along with program requirements, follow these steps.
1.From the main menu of ACC Online
Services for Students,
click the option for Program Evaluation.
2. Select one of the following:
- Select one of your current active programs by clicking the appropriate check box, or
- Do a "what-if" evaluation by selecting another program offered
by Austin Community College. All degree and certificate programs that
are searchable by students are in this alphabetical listing. With this "what
if" evaluation, you may determine to what extent you have already satisfied
the requirements of the program. A "what if" evaluation does not guarantee
admission to a program, nor will it add this program to your academic
record. In order to change your program, you must submit a Student Data
Change Form to the Admissions and Records Office or online found at: http://www3.austincc.edu/it/eforms/frontpage.php?ID=ADRE.005 (select View Form).
3. Click the Submit button.
4. Choose a catalog (see Catalog in Effect below) by clicking the appropriate box and then Submit.
You will then be taken to a report containing the program information.

Substitutions and Waivers
Substitutions and waivers are reviewed
on a case-by-case basis and are program specific. If your Dean or Department
Head approved a substitution or waiver for your program, it will not
display for a "what if" evaluation. Substitutions and waivers
are program and catalog year specific and must be approved by the Admissions
and Records office prior to being posted on your record. To verify
if a form was submitted on your behalf, contact your departmental advisor.
Find your advisor here: http://www.austincc.edu/orgref/orgcharts.php.
Catalog in Effect
If you select one of your current
active programs, the evaluation will be processed using the requirements
from the catalog in effect when you entered Austin Community College
(unless a change was approved at some point). You may graduate under any subsequent catalog under which you
attended, provided: A) the said catalog is not more than five (5) years
old, and B) your particular degree or certificate plan has not been
discontinued by the College. Students
needing more information about this policy or needing to request that an
evaluation be run for a different catalog (as what-if evaluations cannot
be run for your active program in another catalog year at this time)
should contact an academic advisor or counselor.
If you select a "what if"
evaluation, you will then be taken to a form where you must choose the
catalog for which you would like the evaluation run. For more information,
see HELP on the "Choose Catalog" form.
For additional information regarding
graduation requirements, please refer to the Academic Policies section
of the online catalog: http://www3.austincc.edu/catalog/pdf/academic_policies.pdf
