ONRAMPS & COLLEGE CREDIT
Students and their families can explore detailed information about our college credit-bearing opportunities, specifically earning credit, college credit, and grade reporting.
For any additional questions or concerns, contact the OnRamps Support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Eligible students may elect to enroll in an OnRamps course for a letter grade. If the student earns and accepts credit in the course, the grade will appear on the student's university transcript. A letter grade of D- or better is considered passing.
OnRamps college credit earned for a letter grade of C- or above for courses with a Core Curriculum designation are required by law to transfer to any public higher education institution in the state of Texas. These are noted in the Texas Core Code column in the below table.
Most OnRamps courses have Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS) equivalency numbers approved by The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin). These are noted in the TCCNS Equivalency column in the below table.
TRANSFERABILITY AND GRADES
Each college or university evaluates transfer credit based on its own policies, which vary by school, college, and institution. In order to determine how OnRamps courses will transfer, if they will apply to a major or degree program, and if the grade will factor into the GPA, students must contact the higher education institution they plan to attend.
Since OnRamps college credit is provisioned through UT Austin's University Extension, UT Austin policies that apply to University Extension courses apply to OnRamps courses. OnRamps course grades are factored into a student’s cumulative GPA at UT Austin. For more information, visit the UT Undergraduate Catalog.
UT AUSTIN TRANSCRIPTS
Students who earn and accept college credit in an OnRamps course may request a transcript from UT Austin's Office of the Registrar, Transcript Services and have it sent to their chosen higher education institution. Students will not automatically receive a transcript.
Students must wait until the final course grade is recorded with the Office of the Registrar before ordering a transcript. Students may use the Registrar's View My Grades application to confirm their course grade is posted to their UT Austin transcript. Ordering a transcript before grades are posted may result in either a canceled order, if no grades are present, or receiving a transcript without all courses included.
OnRamps students may use the online transcript ordering system. While transcripts can be requested electronically, they cannot be sent electronically to the receiving institution, so it is necessary to complete the 3rd Party Mailing Address section of the form.
OnRamps students who are unable to order online may complete the transcript order form and email it to email@example.com; or fax it to 512-475-7520. The Registrar charges $20 for each transcript requested.
For additional information about how to order a UT Austin transcript, visit the Office of the Registrar's website.
Transcripts are not available for courses in progress, courses that were dropped, or courses for which the student elected not to claim credit. If you need a letter from OnRamps to verify enrollment or non-attendance at UT Austin, please complete the OnRamps Letter Request Form.
COLLEGE RECORDS AND PRIVACY
While parents may communicate with the high school teacher about students' high school grades, the college instructor of record may not communicate with parents regarding students' college grades. The college instructors of record will make every attempt to communicate with the student as this is an important maturation point for college students.
Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), rights belong to the parents with respect to high school records and belong to the student with respect to postsecondary records—regardless of the student's age.
