The goal of Grad TX is to increase the number of Texans completing a certificate or degree, in support of the completion goal identified in the state’s 60x30TX higher education plan.
Grad TX reaches out to students who have left higher education with some college but no credential (SCNC). Participating institutions work with these students, providing supportive and targeted readmission to help them complete their certificates and/or degrees.
The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) is currently collaborating with the Greater Houston Partnership and Houston-area institutions to develop and implement programs and services through Grad TX 2.0. Grad TX 2.0 includes a central intake portal to help re-engage, re-enroll, and match students to programs and institutions of interest, ultimately increasing the number of Texans who successfully return to higher education and complete high-value credentials.
