“One of the most comprehensive state initiatives for improving college and career advising.”
Holly Moore District College Adviser
"If I don’t know the answer, I can quickly obtain it, as well as provide training for other counselors and staff members in my school.”
"There is so much to know and even more that changes every year as new laws are passed. It is great to have a resource like Texas OnCourse handy to answer all of my questions."
Diane Silver High School Counselor
“While there is greater access to information, few of our students and families know HOW to access the information they need. Empowering them to research and using tools like Texas OnCourse helps our students feel more in control.”
