Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

What Students Are Saying

2.89 Average Rating
Great teachers. Quite transferrable. VERY affordable.
Ian from Austin, TX
My opinion is quite biased on this point because I do receive veteran assistance, but I have looked at many colleges in the area and ACC offers affordable education. Now if we could only say that about textbook publishers ;)
Patrick from Austin, TX
ACC is very cheap and offers scholarships for people in need. I've never been happier with the bang for my buck than at ACC.
Gregory from Austin, TX
I am extremely excited that my dad was able to my tuition for my two classes and I am living on my own, all without loans, grants, or any other financial help. Having lower tuition definitely caters to my lifestyle.
Erin from Austin, TX
My tuition for 11 hours last semester was $1000. I learned so much. It is great for those of us who have to pay out of pocket and are on a limited budget.
Suzanna from Austin, TX
Especially if you live in district, you get more than what you pay for. Convenience is key, and that's what makes it worth the money you pay. Compared to university, these classes are extremely cheap, but still the same quality as such.
Mary from Austin, TX
I personally have to pay for school on my own as well as all my living expenses. Because of this I really appreciate the great prices ACC offers to its students, especially those living in district. It makes my life a lot easier and makes going to school more readily available to students like myself who are paying out of their own pocket.
