Graduation Rate


Texas College graduation rate is below the national average.

14% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Texas College completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

This is my son first year on the campus however Thursday evening September 21, 2017 I attempt to walk out the dorm with my 6year old grandson and unbeknownst to me, walked into an altercation with a young man making DEADLY threats to another student trying to walk back into the dorm. There were NO security near the dorm and the Dorm/Den monitor was elderly and could not have controlled the situation alone. There were other students that deflated the situation and didn't allow this ANGRY young man into the dorm after he made Deadly threats to this particular young man. I deemed these young men that deflated the situation men of valor! My concerns is to the Director of the campus, President, Dean of Students etc. How are you going to handle this situation and deflate this young man thinking of Deadly threats to students to have his (homeboys) drive to the campus and shot the students he threaten? How will you protect our children (young men and women) on your campus that travel near and far for an EDUCATION not to be killed?? Why is it that there's not TRAIN officers to assist the dorm/den monitors both male/female? Officers that are not fearful and won't gun down our students? Please respond Respectfully submitted, CONCERN Parent

This is the worst place to send a student and your money. The staff and administration are unorganized and in no regards timely. There is not a clear communication to anyone. I cringe every time I have to pull on to campus for class or to ask them about something that should have been taken care of months ago. Texas College does not conduct like any other school I know of. The employees do not take pride in their jobs or helping the students. I have attended this school for two years praying that each semester gets better. It never does and I will not be giving them any more of my money

My experience was outstanding. I took classes while I was in the Marine Corp. I wasn't aware that the school was a HBCU. I would recommend this school to anyone.

My high school looked better than this college. They do have good, hard working teachers. The football program is horrible. The people are cool if you're used to a hood environment, it was a lot of fights. They need build on to their dorms so that so many people aren't left out of the campus life, i would also recommend co-ed dorms(less fights) and stop treating the students like children (dress code? Really!!!). Also they need a bigger athletic department budget, or to just get rid of it and add it to the schoo or something...

I dislike the fact that majority of the male students are having to live off campus in a old nursing home facility , with mildew in the tile ceiling , sleeping on run down dusty mattresses that look as if they found them in the garbage dumpster , dead bugs on the floor ,Wall Panel to bathroom door look as if termites is eating a way at it ,and having to share a closet big enough for one person . many of the students are without transportation depending on the annex bus to get them to and from the main campus for class on time ( which is over crowded at all times ) No student should have to live in a Old Nursing Home where many elderly sick people have died . Texas College can do better than this I'm sure.. Students traveled from a far such as California, New York , and etc to study at this Historically Black University to sadden by the thought of housing in an OLD Nursing Home..I must say that there is nothing historically about the Rose of Annex ..Nothing at all . I pray that those Students don't get sick from the dusty old dirty mattresses which they gave them paper thin mattress covers to put over them ..Speechless.
