Enrolling in college is a big step, especially if you’ve been away from the classroom for awhile. ACC helps adult learners achieve their academic, career, or personal goals with a range of support services and staff who are passionate about your success.
ACC Adult Education classes are taught by qualified, caring instructors who understand the needs of adult learners. Career Pathways classes are co-taught by an expert in the field of study and an Adult Education specialist. Together they help you develop strong foundational skills while you pursue your career training.
ACC's Adult Education advisors are dedicated to your success. They will help you learn about careers, complete your ACC application, explore financial aid options, and register for classes.
From campus libraries to state-of-the art ACCelerator learning labs, Adult Education students have access to an array of resources as well as staff and tutors ready to offer one-on-one help. Find tutoring schedules on the Learning Labs webpage. View HSE Resources for interactive tools, videos, practice tests, and study aids.
Classroom and testing accommodations are available for students who need them. Accommodations at the college level differ from those for K-12 students and eligible students must have documentation. View Disability Documentation Guidelines.
Accommodations for Adult Education program orientation sessions and classes must be requested at least two weeks in advance. Accommodations for the GED® exam or other high school equivalency tests must be approved by the testing organization and can take up to six weeks.
For questions or to set up accommodation services, contact the Student Accessibility Services office at 512-223-5265 or email SAS-NonCredit@austincc.edu.
Adult Education students can ride the Capital Metro buses and trains for free. After you register, visit ACC Green Pass to learn how to obtain your free pass. The Green Pass allows unlimited rides for one semester.
