The goal of Grad TX is to increase the number of Texans completing a certificate or degree. Our work is done in support of the completion goals identified in the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s 60x30TX higher education plan.
Grad TX reaches out to students who have left higher education with a significant number of semester credit hours but without earning a certificate or degree. Participating institutions work with these students, providing supportive and targeted readmission to help them complete their certificates and/or degrees.
THECB is currently developing partnerships with a core group of institutional partners to develop and implement programs and services through a Grad TX Consortium. These partners will serve as model institutions in terms of working with this population and will increase the number of Texans successfully returning to higher education and completing degrees. Learn more about the Consortium.
Participating Institutions have connected with over 1,500 students; of those, 820 re-enrolled and are matriculating toward completion. Grad TX Partners report a 54.6% reclamation yield.
Grad TX is established under the following authority: Education Code, Title 3. Higher Education, subtitle B. State Coordination of Higher Education, Chapter 61. Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Subchapter A. General Provisions…Sec.61.0762.
