Financial Aid and Scholarships

There are many options for financial assistance for Austin Community College Welding Technology students.  Visit the financial aid web page or contact them via the Help Desk (512-223-4636, Option 5) for information and assistance.

Payment Plans  It is easy to set up a payment plan with the cashier’s office (this may be done online through My ACC ). This enables you to pay a portion of your tuition down to hold your seat, and pay the remainder in installments by set deadlines throughout the semester.
