Tuition and Payments
You can pay your tuition and fees online or in person at a Cashier Office. Payment is due once you register for classes. It is important to note that ACC does not mail bills or statements. We encourage you to pay in full or set up a payment plan immediately to avoid missing your tuition deadline. You will be dropped from any unpaid classes after the tuition deadline. Visit austincc.edu/students/tuition-and-payments/tuition-deadlines for more information.
Don’t miss your deadline!
- Check your tuition deadline to avoid losing your classes.
- If you miss your deadline, you will need to re-register for classes. We cannot guarantee seats will still be available if you have to re-register.
- Meningitis documents also must be processed and approved before your tuition deadline.
Tuition is charged on a per-credit basis. Your residency status determines your tuition rate and some fees. See the Residency Classifications section of this catalog for more information. The Austin Community College Board of Trustees sets tuition and fee rates. Amounts are subject to change without notice. View current tuition and fees at austincc.edu/students/tuition-and-payments/tuition-table.
