Tuesday, February 10, 2009 • Posted February 10, 2009

The Hill Country University Center partners will present information about earning a bachelor degree here in Fredericksburg. This session given by advisors from Austin Community College (ACC), Texas Tech University at Fredericksburg, and Concordia University will be held on Monday, February 23 at 5:00 and 6:30 p.m. at the Fredericksburg High School Library. A seminar on filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will follow.

ACC provides the core curriculum at the freshman and sophomore level in classrooms at Fredericksburg High School. They enroll dual-credit high school students, traditional and non-traditional students who will transfer their credit to a four-year university. An Associate of Arts in Teaching degree is also available at ACC.

Texas Tech University at Fredericksburg delivers junior and senior level courses for the Bachelor of General Studies degree which is tailored to a student’s interests and goals and the new elementary teacher education bachelor degree.

Students can earn a business degree through Concordia University’s Accelerated Business Degree

Program. Students attend class just one night a week, focus on one class at a time and earn 3 hours of college credit in 4 - 6 weeks.

Following the information session, an informative video on filling out the FAFSA will be shown. Students may also speak to financial aid advisors and fill out their FAFSA onsite in the ACC Mobile Go van.
