Spring registration opens at Austin Community College District (ACC) for everyone on Monday, October 31. Students are encouraged to register early, because high-demand classes are filling up fast.

“What is more important is finding a way to support students and our community with what they need to succeed. ACC continues to keep our student success at the forefront of our minds,” says Dr. Monique Umphrey, ACC provost/executive vice chancellor of Academic & Student Affairs. “We are watching the trends. It is our responsibility to continue to expand and add options to provide the classes and resources we can to meet the needs of our students.”

ACC is seeing increased enrollments among new students and among all students in key areas of study, including:

  • Arts and Digital Media (ADM),
  • Information Technology,
  • Liberal Arts- Behavioral Sciences, and
  • Skilled Trades such as welding and manufacturing.

In fall, courses in these programs were among the most in-demand with enrollment up across the board in each area.

Flexibility remains a top priority to fit all schedules. Options include:

  • In-person courses available on campus,
  • Online courses with synchronous and asynchronous options,
  • Hybrid courses where some class periods are held online and others are held in-person (such as labs), and
  • Hyflex classes which allow students to enroll in an in-person course but have access to technology so that they can log in remotely for any given class period. The flexibility makes it easier for students who cannot attend class one day due to a conflict like childcare challenges or illness to stay on track and attend class remotely.

Online learning as a whole remains a popular option for all students. In fall, approximately half of all credit hours were taken online. During the fall semester, more than 60 percent of students took at least one in-person course.

ACC staff are ready to work with students 1-on-1 to help them apply and register. For custom support registering for classes, the college also will host in-person registration support events November 14 - 19. More details to come.

Spring classes begin Tuesday, January 17. For more information, visit
