Our faculty members and staff work hard to provide students with an outstanding experience in their academic venture here at TSTC. Whether students plan to complete their studies at TSTC Harlingen or transfer to another university and continue their education, they will find that studies here at TSTC will provide a solid base upon which to build a quality future. 

The ACADEMIC CORE will transfer as a block of courses to any other public college or university in the state of Texas, and by law will substitute for that university's core requirement for any of their bachelor's degrees. This is an exciting opportunity for students to complete the academic basics here at home before transferring to another public college or university-thus saving lots of time and money in travel, housing, and tuition costs. 

A career in Education can be both exciting and challenging. The Education and Training program at TSTC offers a variety of options for educational goals. In addition on the Certificate of Completion program, an Associate of Applied Science degree is offered. Additional opportunities in Education & Training are offered through articulation agreements with Texas A&M Kingsville and through classes offered at the new University Center. 

Students at TSTC Harlingen will find that our faculty and staff are committed to facilitate success in all educational goals.

I commend each of our students for the commitment to a better future for themselves and their families through the pursuit of a quality education.
