Third Course Attempt

Texas legislation does not provide state funding for any course for which a student enrolls more than two times, regardless of grade received. ACC charges a Third Course Attempt Fee for the following:

  • Courses with the same or substantially similar content
  • Courses that have been attempted more than twice
  • Graded and/or courses dropped after the college census

The Third Course Attempt Fee does not affect developmental, Special Topics, and other state approved courses. Check the ACC website for a listing of courses that are exempt from the third attempt fee.
