ACC Online Services for Continuing Ed.

Program Evaluation

This page allows you to see an evaluation of your progress in satisfying the requirements of an academic program.

In order to view your progress along with program requirements, follow these steps.

1.From the main menu of ACC Online Services for Continuing Education, 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 continuing education 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: (select View Form).

3. Click the Submit button.

You will then be taken to a report containing the program information. 

Important: The report that you view in ACC Online Services is not an official document. It is a tracking device provided as an advising tool so that you may track your progress towards your program completion. Only the Admissions and Records Graduation Desk performs official degree audits.

ACC Policies

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:

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.

General Education and Core Curriculum Course Listings

In the evaluation report, you may see messages indicating that you must choose from a particular section in the General Education course list (for AAS programs) or the Core Curriculum course list (for AA and AS programs). For information regarding the courses in these lists, please refer to the Academic Programs section of the online catalog:

At the beginning of the report, you will also see "Institutional Credits" completed as well as "Credits" completed. "Credits" denotes the number of overall credits you have completed towards this degree plan. This includes transfer work, AP work, CLEP, etc. "Institutional Credits" refers to the credits you have taken at Austin Community College. Remember that at least 25% of the semester hours used in the degree plan must be completed at ACC.

Any developmental (remedial) courses that you have taken will not appear on the evaluation report as these courses do not satisfy degree requirements.
