ACC’s free college prep program accepting fall applications

Enrollment is underway for Austin Community College’s College Prep program, a free college preparation course for adults. Applications are due Friday, September 2.

The free program, offered by ACC’s Adult Education Division, helps high school graduates and GED earners get college-ready. Students receive career counseling and one-on-one guidance completing college admissions and financial aid applications.

The program offers three tracks:

  • Traditional
  • Math-focused
  • English-focused

Students in the traditional track attend workshops and classes covering college success, reading, writing, and math. Students in the math or English track get focused attention on those areas.

All participants also learn proven study strategies for college entrance exams and tests.

“There is a difference between being eligible for college and being ready for college,” says Charlene Gill, ACC College Prep coordinator. “With hands-on support and individualized coaching, College Prep gives students the confidence they need to be successful.”

The College Prep program pays for college readiness assessment fees and class textbooks.

The next 12-week College Prep course begins in mid-September with day and evening classes available. To be eligible, you must be a legal U.S. resident and 17 years or older with a GED or high school diploma. Current and former developmental education students are encouraged to apply. Applicants participate in a brief interview before enrolling and must maintain an 85 percent attendance rate for the course.
