    Yes! I almost went to a university when I graduated high school in 2011, and as I am about to start UT engineering in Fall 2014, I do not regret my decision to go to community college for the basics. I am going into UT with my first two years of college paid for and have not had to take out any loans. I worked my way through ACC and found it very do-able. The classes are very flexible and the option of online classes is available too, so you can tailor your school schedule to work around your work schedule or other responsibilities in your life. I went to school full-time almost every semester and the tuition was a little over a thousand each semester where each credit hour is around $60. Compared to other colleges, where it costs thousands upon thousands each semester, that is a steal! I had some fabulous teachers who have taught at UT and many other well-known universities, so the quality of education is still very good for the price! I personally took a lot out of my education here and feel ready to tackle the rigors of UT engineering, and it is perfect for those not wanting to loan out their entire college career. A side note, the rate is about $60 an hour if you are considered IN-DISTRICT. If you are considered out-of-district, then you end up pay around three times more a semester than someone who is in-district. That still is way cheaper compared to a regular university, however I recommend somehow moving into an in-district location in order to pay the cheaper price. That is what I did when I lived in Dripping Springs. Although I will note, that the in-district line has expanded since I first started since they have built more campuses, like the Hays location. If you are wondering whether you fall in or out-of district, they have that information on their website.

    Do not buy books on campus! It's extremely expensive. I love that you have free computer and printer access!

    Austin Community College District offers several scholarships & some of which are tailored to certain areas of study to better fit each student. Austin Community College District also offers a simple step-by-step way to receive financial aid through grants & loans dispersed by the school before classes begin which can be used for textbooks, class supplies, gas to get to class, bus fare (Austin Community College District gives current students a bus/train pass for free), & even help with outside monetary issues. Austin Community College District is well worth the affordable buck.

    ACC is significantly less expensive than going straight to a four-year institution and many of the professors are from neighboring universities. You get the same education for your undergraduate general coursework at a fraction of the price.
