Austin Community college has been seen to many students as the "easy way out" if it's money wise or scholarly wise. As for the money part, yes and no. If you live in a town that pays taxes such as Roun Rock, Cedar Park, or Austin your tuition is about two months worth of car payments. However, if you reside in Georgetown or a town not paying taxes, such as myself, tuition is just as much to go to the University Of Texas. Last time I checked it was almost running MORE than what the cost would of been for me to attend UT. Over all, i'm not saving any money. Yes, classes may be easier but i'm paying just as much as i could at a 4-year college.
