Amarillo College
Amarillo, United States - Texas


University description (as per official university website)

Amarillo College, or AC, was established on July 16, 1929, as Amarillo Junior College. It was the first college district of Texas. The first class was held in September 1929. The college moved to its main campus in 1937. The campus encompasses more than 30 acres in Amarillo, Texas. AC was the first publicly supported college in Texas that admitted black students to its undergraduate classes. The first black student enrolled in 1951. The college also has several other campuses in Amarillo, Dumas, and Hereford in Texas.

The academic division of AC is organized into various departments including business administration, mass communication, mathematics and engineering, computer information systems and many more. The scholarship programs of the college include the AC Foundation Scholarship, Watkins Memorial Scholarship, Sybil B. Harrington Scholarship, Adult Students Scholarship, LITE Scholarship, O'Brien Scholarship, and Tommy Thompson Scholarship.


On July 16, 1929, Amarillo College became the first junior college district in the state to be organized independent of a school district. The first classes were held in September 1929. The College moved to its present location with the construction of its first permanent building in 1937.

After serving primarily as a junior college offering arts and sciences courses, the curriculum was expanded in 1942 to include vocational courses.

In 1958, Amarillo College was granted its own board of regents independent of the trusteeship of the Amarillo Independent School District. The 1960s brought expansion in College facilities and programs. A number of allied health and occupational-technical programs were added to the curriculum along with an extensive array of continuing education and community service courses.

In 1995, state legislation transferred Texas State Technical College - Amarillo to AC. Today, the East Campus (formerly Amarillo Technical Center) continues a 25-year history of meeting the region's technical education needs.

January 2000 saw the opening of the Amarillo College Moore County Campus in Dumas and was followed by the opening of the Hereford Campus in the fall of 2005.

Amarillo College served more than 10,700 academic students in Fall 2004 and another 14,721 individuals in continuing education courses.

September 2005 will see the opening of the sixth Amarillo College campus. The newest to be added is located in Hereford.

Financial Aid - General Information

Financial aid is a means of reducing a student's educational costs. Such costs include direct expenses, such as tuition, fees, books and supplies, and indirect expenses, such as room and board, transportation and personal expenses. Aid is available to students through state, federal and local government; through many private sources, such as industrial, service, civic and fraternal groups; and directly through colleges and universities.
Awards at Amarillo College are made on the basis of financial need, academic progress, achievement, or other qualifications required by the donors of the funds. The financial need of a student is the difference between cost of attendance during an academic year and the amount which the student/family can be expected to contribute toward these expenses. This is called the “Expected Family Contribution.”
The U.S. Department of Education frequently changes regulations pertaining to financial aid. Amarillo College attempts to comply with all legislative mandates and Federal regulations. The Financial Aid Office reserves the right to make policy and procedure changes during the award year.
