Score More with Four

When you take one of our technical pathways that has four courses, you could knock out a whole semester of classes at TSTC, depending on your program choice.

All high school students (public, private, home school) are eligible to participate as long as we have a current agreement with their high school. Check with your high school counselor to learn if your school has a partnership with TSTC.

Getting started

  • Contact your high school counselor to learn about your program options in your location
  • Complete the online TSTC application here
  • Work with your counselor to collect the following:
    • High school transcript
    • College transcripts from all other institutions from which you have previously earned college credit
    • Bacterial meningitis vaccination record (on-site only)

Cost and payment

  • Courses are offered at a reduced cost of $33 per credit hour
    • Many ISDs pay either full tuition or partial tuition on behalf of their students
    • Find out from your high school counselor

Textbooks, materials, etc.

  • You are responsible for purchasing textbooks and additional materials (computer software, tools and proper safety equipment, if mandated by the program) by the first class day
  • Some ISD’s purchase textbooks and additional materials for their students. Always consult with your counselor before purchasing textbooks

Student Expectations

Dual enrollment students must abide by the Code of Student Conduct outlined in the current College Catalog and Student Handbook. Dual enrollment students will be dismissed for disruptive behavior and referred to their high school principal or designee for disciplinary action on the high school side. Dual Enrollment students attending classes on a TSTC campus will be treated like traditional college students and are responsible for knowing all rules and regulations of the College. Student conduct violations will be handled through the Code of Student Conduct, Statewide Operating Standard ES 3.23, Student Rights and Responsibilities tstc.edu/governance/es.

  • Dual enrollment students must maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher to continue in their pathway
  • Dual Enrollment students are responsible for notifying their high school counselor and Dual Enrollment Representative if they are wanting to withdraw from their course(s)
  • Students are required to sign and submit a drop form to their counselor and DE Rep in order to be formally dropped

 

Access and Learning Accommodations (ALA) 

The Texas State Technical College (TSTC) Access and Learning Accommodations office serves as a resource for students who may experience barriers due to a disability (long-term or short-term). 

Students seeking accommodations or services should make contact with the ALA office in a timely manner to self-report and begin the interactive process with an ALA staff person. Students may also be asked to provide supporting documentation from an individual qualified to diagnose the disclosed disability. 

ALA will then collaborate with college personnel to develop appropriate accommodations that ensure equal access to all programs, activities, and services at TSTC.

ALA also coordinates with community assistance programs and serves as the liaison for Texas Workforce Solutions.

To make contact with the ALA office, please email adarequest@tstc.edu or a representative from your campus. 

If you need to make a request for accommodations for a special event, please contact ALA at least one full week in advance.

Learning Resource Centers at Texas State Technical College

The Learning Resource Centers (LRC), located on all TSTC campuses, offer many services to assist students in achieving academic goals. Remote library services and resources are available to all students, faculty and staff 24/7; and physical library services and resources vary depending on the location.

The LRC also participates in TexShare, a cooperative program designed to improve library services to Texans through the sharing of resources. For more information about library resources, please send an email to asklibrary@tstc.edu or contact your local LRC.

 

After You Graduate

If you are planning on attending TSTC after you graduate, you DO NOT need to re-apply. Simply notify your Dual Enrollment Representative and they will send you a Change of Major form, transitioning you from a DE student to a Traditional Student. From there, you will need to submit your official high school transcript, bacterial meningitis vaccination record, and TSI scores to your Student Resource Coach.
