Building a strong core
starts here.

We don't just offer technical degrees. You can get your general academics here, too.

The Academic Core provides you with a broad general understanding of communication skills, critical thinking, inquiry and research, and multiple perspectives about an individual and the world in which that person lives.

This Academic Core is ideal for you if you intend to:

  • Transfer to another public college or university.
  • Complete their AAS or AS and then transfer to another public college or university.
  • Get some "basic" classes.

After completing this Academic Core, you will receive an institutional certificate of completion. In order to qualify to receive the institutional certificate of completion, you must obtain a "C" or better in all courses taken for core completion. You must also have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. Completion of the Academic Core allows you to transfer all the classes as a block. This core will substitute for the academic core of any other public college or university in Texas.

Please note: You must complete TSTC 1101 College Success course in 1st semester.

Academic Core Approved by THECB beginning Fall 2014.
