TSTC is committed to providing highly specialized and advanced technical education that can lead to great career opportunities. We currently offer over 100 certificate and degree programs state-wide.

TSTC students come from more than 100 counties across the state. They arrive right out of high school, transfer from other colleges or from the workforce.

While we are proud that TSTC's education is affordable and a high return on your investment, we realize financial aid is the only option for some students.

At TSTC we understand your ultimate goal is a career you're passionate about and will make you the money you want to enjoy your life! Our goal is to help you be successful.

TSTC has been providing top-quality, career-driven education for Texans for close to 50 years. The college is nationally recognized for the number and quality of our technology graduates.

The average age of the TSTC student is 23... start your next career or strengthen your career path with us.Whether you’ve been working for one year, two or 20, returning now for more education is a big decision, particularly if you have a family to support. Here are the reasons our incoming students give:

  • I have a good position, but to advance in my company and get a raise, I need additional training in a few areas.
  • My current job has low wages and no benefits. I want a career that offers more.
  • I have a degree, but to my surprise, I just didn’t like that line of work. Now I know what I want to do and TSTC can get me there.
  • I always wanted my education, but family needs kept edging it out. I’m ready now and I want my children to see the importance of pursuing higher education.

We want to honor your reasons in every way, including a discussion of how TSTC’s training can be flexible in accommodating your work schedule and family needs. You may be able to keep working and attend TSTC. Or, your financial aid counselor at TSTC may find that you qualify for the kind of grant that allows you to quit your job and focus intensively on your schooling, getting you back into the workforce as quickly as possible.

Be assured: TSTC will not try to “sell” you on obtaining more training than you need. Your training at TSTC is cost-effective. And the Legislature wants a skilled workforce in the field supporting Texas industries. Because TSTC is non-profit, we have no agenda to hold you here longer than is needed for your successful entrance into the career field of your choice.

Whatever your own particular reason, make an appointment today to visit with one of our career counselors. Join forces with the technical college looked to by Texas industries and beyond for its best qualified employees. Start now by setting up your no-obligation personal profile that will help you return to this site and find your preferred pages with ease.
