Latest Update

We are so excited that more summer classes are starting on June 1st! TSTC is known for our hands-on education, and we want to make sure that each of our students has the skills that they need to be successful in a great-paying job.

Before Monday, students should review their schedules and course syllabi. Course syllabi are available on the TSTC website under the Schedules link. Review the syllabus for course information regarding online instruction, lab information and faculty contact.

A number of our courses are now being taught online or in a hybrid class (part online, part in the classroom) so students should use the TSTC Portal to check Student Planning for the latest information about their classes. Note that some schedule changes may be in progress, therefore they should review their schedule this weekend. Classes without a room number will be an online class.

For those who are coming to a TSTC campus, remember that safety is our number one priority and we all have a role to play to make sure we stay healthy.

  • Wear a face covering at all times.
  • Use social distancing by staying 6 feet away from others.
  • Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
  • Use hand sanitizer regularly.
  • Pay attention to entrance and exit only doors.
  • Follow directional signs.

Perhaps most importantly, stay home if you:

  • Don't feel well.
  • Are pending COVID-19 results.
  • Are living with someone who has COVID 19 symptoms.
  • Don't have classes that require you to come to campus.

 

In short, students should stay home if they think they might have been exposed to COVID-19 or are sick and let us know by filling out this simple form. We have a team on standby to help communicate with their instructors to come up with a plan so that they can make up their work.

While we have limited staff on campus, we are providing remote services and are excited to serve our students! Click here for our latest COVID-19 information. We are a #TSTCfamily and are excited that students are continuing their education with us!


Stay Safe,

The health and well-being of the TSTC community is our highest priority. With the arrival of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States, and more specifically in Texas, rest assured that we are continuously monitoring the situation and receiving updates from health officials daily. We are committed to keeping you informed as the situation evolves by providing updates via emails and on the TSTC Portal for students and employees.  


The College is following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. Those recommendations include suggested steps for people who have traveled recently. Though we’re not aware that anyone in the TSTC family has traveled to impacted locations, if you have traveled to locations considered CDC Level 2 and 3 travel advisory locations for coronavirus we recommend that you self-isolate for 14 days before returning to campus. 


The best action you can take at this time is to follow the recommendations of public health officials and wash your hands regularly, avoid close contact with people who are sick and take other preventative measures.
