Dual Enrollment for Texas Schools

Appropriations funded through the 85th legislative session provide full fee reimbursement to Texas school districts for the 2017-2018 school year.

For every student who enrolls in ninth grade in Texas public schools, only 15.9% complete a college degree or certificate within six years of finishing high school. OnRamps' high-quality, multimedia courses are designed by The University of Texas at Austin faculty to meet this challenge head on. Based on the latest teaching research, utilizing best-in-class education tools and delivered on your campus by your teachers, OnRamps brings the college experience to the high school classroom. Schools that partner with OnRamps transform how students learn and prepare for post-secondary academic success.
