The program is structured to help students complete their degrees with manageable low debt levels and for students to be able to repay their loan within 10 years. More info

  • A free college and career planning tool Tomorrow Ready Texas — to help parents support their teens with college and career planning. The online tool provides Texas families with the resources they need to support their child’s success after high school (in college, a career or militiary service). The resource also includes specific information for families of students with disabilities.

  • A new higher-ed success resource database — The Texas Student Success Program Inventory (TX SSPI) — that features 244 student success programs from 74 Texas public higher-ed institutions. Read more here and here.
