Texas Affordable Baccalaureate (TAB) Program

The purpose of the TAB Program is to increase the availability of affordable baccalaureate programs at additional Texas public and independent higher education institutions. Funding supports the planning and development processes.

Through a combination of competency-based and traditional courses, online and in-person instruction, academic credit for work experience, and alternative low?cost tuition structures, TAB offers an accessible bachelor’s degree that can save Texas students both time and money.

The TAB is an innovative model and bold solution for many challenges facing higher education. First-generation, underprepared, low-income, and working adult students, all part of higher education’s “new normal,” need non-traditional and affordable postsecondary options. The TAB program is designed to deliver just that. Through a combination of competency-based and traditional courses, online and in-person instruction, and alternative low-cost tuition structures, TAB offers an accessible bachelor’s degree that can save students thousands of dollars and semesters of time. 

There are no new funding opportunities for Texas Affordable Baccalaureate programs at this time.
