General Admission Requirements
Students who apply for admission into college credit programs may be admitted to any college within the Texas State Technical College System under any of the following categories. These apply to students in college credit programs.
In addition, all applicants must submit scores from an approved Texas Success Initiative (TSI) test, a TSTC-administered placement test, or provide appropriate documentation of TSI exemption or waiver.
Additional Program Admission Requirements
Some college credit programs have additional requirements that must be met before students may be admitted into those particular programs. These may include minimum scores on the admission placement test or other departmental tests, a physical standards statement assessing their physical capabilities for the program, letters of recommendation, or other program-specific requirements. The Admissions Office can provide additional requirements applicable to selected programs.
SB 1231 Limitation on the number of drops for students
Under section 51.907 of the Texas Education Code, "an institution of higher education may not permit a student to drop more than six courses, including any course a transfer student has dropped at another institution of higher education." This statute was enacted by the State of Texas in spring 2007 and applies to students who enroll in a public institution of higher education as first-time freshmen in fall 2007 or later. Any course that a student drops is counted toward the six-course limit if "(1) the student was able to drop the course without receiving a grade or incurring an academic penalty; (2) the student's transcript indicates or will indicate that the student was enrolled in the course; and (3) the student is not dropping the course in order to withdraw from the institution." Some exemptions for good cause could allow a student to drop a course without having it counted toward this limit, but it is the responsibility of the student to establish that good cause. Contact the Texas State Technical College Marshall Registrar's Office at (903) 935-1010 for more information before you drop a course.
Continuing Education and Workforce Training
Admission requirements for continuing education and workforce training programs are different from those described in this section.
TSTC requires all students to have an e mail account. E mail is used by school administration and instructors as the primary means of communication. If you do not already have access to an e mail account there are a number of free e mail services you can open an account with. These include HotMail, GMail, Yahoo Mail and AOL. These are suggestions only, please feel free to use another provider if you prefer. It is the students responsibility to check their account on a regular basis, failure to due so is not an excuse for missing an assignment or not receiving administrative correspondence.
