COVID-19 Updates


The global situation is constantly evolving and ACC will inform all prospective students of changes as they develop. The current global situation has created some delays in the issuance of student visas; updates can be found on the International FAQs here.

International students should contact the International Student Office if you are considering traveling outside or have questions on returning to the United States. All updates will be posted on the Austin Community College webpage.
