Austin Community College
High School Programs Orientation


  • All college courses will require textbooks, but unlike high school, textbooks and other required materials are not provided for college classes and are the students responsibility to acquire and purchase.
  • Early College High Schools, Innovative Academies, and PTECH schools cover all materials and textbook costs for their students.

It is not possible to be successful in a college course without the required materials, so make sure you have acquired your textbook(s) either before the class officially starts or by the first week of the teaching session!
