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.

Media Room

Marketing & Communications is the first point of contact for news media seeking information about Texas State Technical College. Media Communications professionals assist print, broadcast and online reporters in identifying faculty and staff experts and arranging interviews. The office issues news releases and advisories to help the media stay on top of the latest news at TSTC.

TSTC Marketing & Communication offices are open weekdays 8 a.m.-5 p.m. but your designated media contacts are also available after hours to the media. If an employee is contacted directly by a member of the news media and asked to provide any information regarding events, activities, students or other information, it is TSTC’s policy for employees to refer all questions by news media to the TSTC Marketing Department and/or Public Information Office at the respective college or the system office first. 

According to TSTC system operating standards, “The campus public information officer, or when necessary the System public information officer, should be the first contact for all news purposes:

  • to set-up interviews with appropriate individuals;
  • to facilitate the media interview;
  • to ensure the public information office is being informed of news communications which affects its campus; and
  • to ensure that in crisis or other situations which bring media attention
  • to the campus, media contacts are channeled through the public information office.”

For a complete explanation of TSTC’s System Operating Standard on dissemination of information and news to the public, see SOS GA 1.7.
