Adult & Continuing Education

SAS provides accommodations for qualified students in ACC's Adult Education (AE) and Continuing Education (CE) courses.

Whether you want to earn your high school equivalent (GED), jumpstart a new career, take courses to help with college preparation or take a class just for fun, take a look at the information below to choose which program best meets your needs.

Regardless of how long you've been out of school, services may be available to you. While SAS requires documentation of a disability, your history of receiving accommodations, taking special education classes, or receiving modifications in high school will help us determine your eligibility for services.

Please review the options below and choose the one that is most relevant to you.

  • I have current documentation for my disability
  • I do not have any current documentation for my disability
  • I have no documentation of a disability
    • When you were in school, did a teacher ever tell you that you had a disability?

      Were you in special education? Did you go to ARD meetings with your parents? Were you a 504 student? Did you attend classes or tests in a different room (resource room)?

      If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, contact SAS-noncredit@austincc.edu for additional help.

      If you answered "no" to all of these questions, please contact SAS@austincc.edu to set up a meeting to talk about your next steps.

      If you are interested in being evaluated for a disability, please refer to the Evaluation Resource list.
