Your support is your teenager’s most important resource. It doesn’t matter whether or not you went to college – by encouraging your children and assuring them that college is important and that they can succeed, you can help them far more than anyone else.
College gives students a tremendous amount of freedom.
Students should be prepared to do most of their learning on their own.
Dual Credit students are treated no differently than any other Austin Community College student.
Support systems are available at Austin Community College, such as learning labs, free tutoring, career planning, transfer services, and computer access, but students must seek out the services, ask for the help, and follow through. You can make sure your teenager finds out about all the resources available through Student Services.
