Does Austin College allow students to double-major, and does it cost more?
Austin College
Hi Dante, at Austin College students will either major and minor or double major as part of our general education curriculum - that means it is very common and there are not additional costs to doing so.

What are Austin College's strongest majors and what programs do you offer to support them?
Austin College
Lily, that's a tough question to answer. Austin College is known to have a strong curriculum across all academic departments. What is more important is what your interests and goals are, and how we can help support you in reaching them. Two distinctions I love about Austin College include: all students will participate in an applied learning experience before graduation, and we offer a finish in four guarantee.

While I am a student in college can I still apply for scholarships to help cover housing?
Austin College
Hi Jose, our transfer scholarships range up to $21,000 per year, with additional aid available if you submit a FAFSA to be considered for need-based aid. The majority of our aid helps cover the cost of tuition and fees. Transfer students may choose to live on or off campus which can help with the costs of attendance.
