AC Invites Students to Communities Preview Week

Students new to Amarillo College this fall can get a head start on their first semester by attending Communities Preview Week.

All of AC’s programs of study are aligned academic communities that correspond with career endorsements supported by Texas high schools. Each of AC’s communities will present open house orientation opportunities Aug. 14-16.
