OnRamps has been providing high-quality educational opportunities across Texas, providing dual enrollment and distance learning opportunities that transform engagement and the classroom experience for students and teachers.
ADVANCING COLLEGE READINESS
This year alone our student cohort is over 41,000 strong—up from 166 in our inaugural academic year of 2012-2013.
We awarded more than 80,000 semester credit hours in the 2021-2022 academic year, and 92% of eligible students earned college credit.
OnRamps saved eligible students who accepted college credit a combined average of $30,400,00 in tuition and textbooks costs, per College for All Texans data on average costs for public four-year higher education institutions.
Nearly half of current OnRamps students would be the first in their families to earn a bachelor’s degree.
In their first year with OnRamps, teachers receive more than 80 hours of professional learning and development, followed by more than 35 hours in subsequent years. In 2021-2022, OnRamps teachers received over 54,000 hours of training.
OnRamps currently supports over 1,350 high school teachers across Texas, providing ongoing professional learning and development to deepen content knowledge and implement the high school portion of our dual enrollment courses with fidelity.
Since its launch in the summer of 2020, there have been over 3,200 enrollments in the OnRamps Distance Learning Catalog: our latest professional development offering to strengthen teachers’ efficacy and practice in hybrid and distance learning environments. Five modules are available at no cost to eligible middle- and high-school teachers through our Texas Education Agency partnership.
Beginning in the 2022-2023 academic year, OnRamps is partnering with Tarleton State University to deliver the OnRamps dual enrollment courses and professional development model. Tarleton OnRamps currently offers Precalculus and College Algebra courses to over 650 students.
