      No need to reapply! Your summer registration dates start April 1. Do these steps as soon as possible:

      • Submit a new residency form if you've been gone a year.

      • Register for classes ASAP
  • Paying for Summer Classes
    • If you're one of the more than 13,000 Austin Community College (ACC) students receiving financial aid, you may have access to Pell grants for summer classes. If you haven't yet applied for financial aid, there's still time. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to see if you qualify for financial assistance.

      If your assistance funds are not enough to cover all tuition and fees, you can set up an interest-free payment plan to break up the outstanding balance into three installments.

  • Summer Child Care
    • Students with children will now have an easier time taking summer classes, thanks to the Child Watch Drop-In Center at ACC Highland that opened this year. You can leave your kids aged 12 months to 12 years for up to three hours a day, or 12 hours per week. Cost is $4 an hour, with discounts for multiple kids.

      Additionally, ACC Children's Lab has an Evening Care program for students enrolled in evening classes and the college has expanded its child care voucher program. Learn more at
