The following steps to admissions are for Texas State Technical College North Texas Center in Red Oak campus ONLY.

At Texas State Technical College, we work hard to make every student's admissions process as smooth as possible. Please read carefully through the following 8 steps to begin:

Step 1

Complete the Admissions Application

Apply online - It's quick and easy! You can also download an application, or request a printed application by calling the Admissions Office at 972-617-4040. Along with the online, downloaded or printed application, please submit the following forms to the Admissions Office at TSTC North Texas or mail to PO Box 1499, Red Oak, TX 75154:

  • Student Health Services Form
    The information requested on this form is needed to complete state and federal government reporting requirements and does not affect your enrollment or your admission to TSTC.
  • Special Population Form
    It is the policy of TSTC to identify and provide services for all students qualifying as "Special Student Populations." Special Student Populations are defined by federal statute and include individuals who are educationally or economically disadvantaged, disabled, limited English proficient, and individuals enrolled in programs designed to eliminate gender bias. There are definitions listed on the Special Population Form. Please check the ones that apply to you. If none of them apply, complete section I only, and return to TSTC. Note: Ethnicity and gender information solicited in Section I is requested on a "voluntary" basis for affirmative action reports and will not be used as a factor in the admissions process.
  • W-9S Tax ID Form

Step 2

Submit an Official High School Transcript or GED Diploma

Submit an official high school transcript or your GED diploma to the Admissions Office, if you have not previously attended college. The high school transcript must be an official transcript - imprinted with the school's seal and delivered in a sealed envelope. If you received your GED in Texas and need an official certificate/transcript, call the Texas Education Agency (TEA) at 512.463.9292 or visit https://bass.tea.state.tx.us/Tea.GEDi.Web/Forms/CertificateSearch.aspx to purchase and print a copy (*Please note there is a $5 fee)
