Building a strong core
starts here.

We don't just offer technical degrees. You can get your general academics here, too.

TSTC's Academic Core can provide you with a broad general understanding of communication skills, critical thinking, inquiry and research, and multiple perspectives about an individual and the world that we live in.

With TSTC's Academic Core classes, you can:

  • Transfer credits to another public college or university.
  • Complete an AAS or AS at TSTC and transfer to another public college or university.
  • Get your "basics" out of the way.

After completing the Academic Core courses at TSTC, you'll receive an institutional certificate of completion. In order to qualify to receive the certificate, you must obtain a "C" or better in all courses taken for core completion. You must also have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. Completion of the Academic Core allows you to transfer all the classes as a block. This will substitute for the academic core at any other public college or university in Texas.

Please note: You must complete TSTC 1101 College Success course in your 1st semester.

Academic Core Approved by THECB beginning Fall 2014.
