Texas College Bridge Adds New Category
We’re excited to let you know that we have a new category in Texas College Bridge... Inactivity Reason!

The available options to assign to student accounts are:
  • Moved out of the district
  • Met College Readiness Standards - Both
  • Met College Readiness Standards - English
  • Met College Readiness Standards - Math
  • Early Graduate

Texas College Bridge is excited to announce partnerships with Texas A&M University-San Antonio, The University of Texas at San Antonio, and all campuses of Alamo Colleges District, including Northwest Vista College, Northeast Lakeview College, Palo Alto College, St. Philip’s College, and San Antonio College. 

We’re also thrilled to welcome McMurry University to Texas College Bridge. This is our first MOU with a private university, and we hope a harbinger of more to come!

More Than 70% of Texas Community Colleges Partner with Texas College Bridge
