Destination ACC

Austin Community College is hosting an enrollment event, Destination ACC: Saturday. 
Destination ACC: Saturday is a great chance for students and parents to get one-on-one help with every step of the ACC enrollment process. It helps students know their options at ACC, and allows them to complete the enrollment process in as little as one day. Whether your student is interested in earning a degree, training for a career, or getting ahead with transfer classes, Destination ACC: Saturday is designed to help get them to the next step in that process.

The events take place on the Saturdays of May 7 and May 15 at the Round Rock, Highland and Riverside campuses.

To sign up, visit austincc.edu/destination. Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions.

Complete the Senior Survey - Get Your Final Transcript

Seniors should have received an email at their RRISD student email account with a link to the senior survey. This final survey is important for many reasons.

  • The survey provides feedback to RRISD and Westwood staff about our students’ experience at Westwood.
  • When completing the survey, students will indicate the college they will attend next year. This is where their free final transcript will be sent. This is the last step of the survey.
    • Students will not be required to request their transcript through the registrar’s office if they complete the online survey.
    • Students should not complete the survey until they have made their final college decision.
    • If a student makes a change to their final college choice after completing the survey, please see Mr. Clark to update your school choice.
  • For colleges outside of Texas, please list the name and address of the college.
  • The survey also provides Westwood with information regarding the colleges/universities the members of the class of 2016 will attend.
  • Link to RRISD Senior Survey. Students will need to be signed in to Google with their RRISD Student account.

If you have any questions about the survey, please see Mr. Clark in D1127.
