What Students Are Saying

2.89 Average Rating
Although this college is in fact a community college, it's really not that bad of a school. It definitely depends on campuses, but that's the great part about it; you can choose whichever campus you want, find the teacher you want, and choose from a lot of classes. Also, this college revolves around convenience, be it by location, transportation, or even scheduling.

i am attending austin community college to complete my basics, while i continue to work and save money to help my parents pay for my tuition and books. i have found it easy to get around and the classes are small, and getting to know the others students has allowed for great study groups.
