  1. ACC is one of the best kept secrets in Texas. My daughter went there for 2 semesters to get her undergrad basics.
    She had small classes and great professors (most also taught at UT) -all at a fraction of the cost of TSU or UT. She now attends a small private college in Arizona, and the college accepted 19 of her ACC credits. I thought this was pretty good since the credits came from an “out-of-state” commmunity college. I believe that if surrounding communities invested in ACC, they would be providing affordable higher education opportunities for their young adults. It’s hard to go wrong with that…
