How OnRamps Works

Credit from The University of Texas at Austin is earned through the University Extension (UEX) within the TEXAS Extended Campus. OnRamps courses do not require admission to the university but are aligned with courses taught to UT Austin's residential students. A university faculty member serves as the Instructor of Record and evaluates students' progress in each college course.

Process

  1. Students are enrolled in a yearlong course taught by their high school teacher for high school credit.
  2. During the fall semester OnRamps students must complete a series of required assignments that are designated by an Instructor of Record at The University of Texas at Austin and earn a grade of 75% or better on the required assignments to be eligible to be dually enrolled in the university course offered during the spring semester.
  3. During the Spring semester OnRamps students must complete a series of additional required assignments that are designated by the university's Instructor of Record to determine successful completion of the college course.
  4. The university's Instructor of Record will award students the appropriate grade based on their performance for the college course. The high school teacher will separately award credit for the grade earned in the high school course, which may differ from that for the college course.
