The Office of Distance and Alternative Education offers Austin Community College (ACC) students a convenient way to earn college credit through online and hybrid courses where the majority of instruction occurs when students and faculty are not in the same place.
These interactive, web-based classes are designed for students who desire flexibility in their studies. Course content and transferability are identical to classes offered on campus, giving students more scheduling options and a wider selection of classes to meet their needs.
We have a dedicated staff that supports faculty and students. Contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you an ACC faculty getting ready to start teaching online? Or are already teaching online and would like more support?
Are you a prospective or current ACC student looking for more information about distance education options at ACC?
