ACC hosts recruiting day for new Texas A&M Engineering Academy

Austin Community College (ACC) invites students and the community to meet with advisors from ACC and Texas A&M University from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 25, at the Highland Campus ACCelerator to learn more about enrolling in the new Texas A&M-Chevron Engineering Academy at ACC.

The Engineering Academy allows students to take their first two years of coursework at an ACC campus while pursuing one of 18 majors within the Texas A&M College of Engineering.

“This academy makes it possible for more students to pursue their dreams by starting at ACC and finishing at one of the most prestigious engineering schools in the nation,” says Dr. Richard Rhodes, ACC president/CEO. “It’s about expanding opportunities to an affordable and accessible bachelor degree.”

Qualified students will be co-enrolled at ACC and Texas A&M University. They will complete the first two years of coursework at ACC — including engineering classes taught by A&M faculty at Highland Campus — then finish their degrees in College Station. Academy students will be able to take part in activities and organizations at both institutions.

The Engineering Academy is for all ACC students who have achieved a high school diploma or equivalent and are pre-calculus or calculus ready as determined by ACC.

Applications for the 2017 fall class will be accepted through April. For more information about the program and to RSVP for the recruiting day event, visit
