The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board issued a notice Aug. 2 that ACC can expand its program offerings, per ACC Communications Coordinator John Tompkins. The community college can now offer an Associate of Applied Science degree and a Level 2 certificate for automotive technology at the J.B. Hensler College and Career Academy. ACC can also begin offering an AAS and Level 2 certificate in welding.
“Offering these advanced degrees and certificates will provide our students with a higher level of education that will benefit them as they pursue their careers,” ACC Vice President of Instruction Cindy Griffith said in the release. “These credentials will continue to pay dividends for our students long after they complete their degrees.”
The new degrees and advanced certificates will become available for students beginning in August 2022. ACC has offered the Level 1 certificate for both programs for many years, Tompkins told Community Impact Newspaper.
