ApplyTexas
 
As a result of the earlier opening date for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), participating Texas institutions of higher education in November decided to move the ApplyTexas annual application opening date from August 1 to July 1, starting in summer 2017. This would be for applications for summer 2018, fall 2018, and spring 2019.
As in the past, each institution will have the option to open on this date or later.                                 
We realize this adjustment in schedule may affect your SIS and other admission processes.  If there are ways we can assist you in accommodating this change, please let us know. Send your suggestions to us at applytexas_adm@austin.utexas.edu.
Thank you for your patience during this transition.

Video Tutorials: To help students understand the step-by-step process of applying for scholarships at AC I have created two video tutorials. The first is an extended version to use if showing to a class. I've sent to our online classes who aren't able to meet for a workshop. It has more detailed information about the scholarships we offer and a few tips in creating the application. The second is a shorter version used mostly on social media and shared with student emails. Please share the videos with your students who plan on attending AC.
