Dual Enrollment students are considered college students.

TSTC is excited to offer Performance-Based Education (PBE)! PBE is the name of TSTC’s course-based Competency-Based Education (CBE) initiative. This modality will help students to focus on mastery of specified industry skills or competencies. It is often self-directed and is either conducted fully online or in a blended learning environment that flips traditional lecture to online and places the emphasis on hands-on learning in a technical lab environment

To find out more about PBE and how it will affect your DE students, please look at this PBE Informational Sheet

The crosswalks listed here are designed to assist our partnering ISD’s identify high school course equivalency for each course completed in our dual enrollment pathways.

Texas State Technical College has designed their crosswalks to align with a specific Program of Study. It is ultimately the high school’s responsibility to determine that each college course meets the high school, private, charter or home school’s TEKS/learning outcomes and to determine if any additional outcomes need to be supplemented by the school/ district.

The suggested crosswalks are not mandated to be used as it is the school district’s responsibility/ authority to choose how to award high school credit in a dual enrollment program.

All active High School Partners must update the College with sufficient notification to review the College’s obligations and obtain necessary approvals for a proposed partnership for all grant applications.

A copy of the proposal and/or a detailed statement of work must be provided to TSTC a minimum of thirty (30) days before the grant application is due.

TSTC will provide a written response (approval or disapproval) within two weeks of receipt of the request and the appropriate documentation.

Additionally, an active MOU must be in place for the College to provide any grant support approval
