Sunday, May 12, 2024

Texas State University has been named one of the nation’s “Best Colleges” in three categories for 2024 by Abound, an online college guidance system for degree-seeking adults.

Abound listed TXST among the Best Colleges for Adults, Best Colleges for Military and Veterans and Best 250 Grad Schools.

Abound evaluates schools in four categories: accessibility, affordability, acceleration and advancement:

• Accessibility measures schools on courses offered in the evening, weekends and online; online program options in a diverse range of fields, and on-campus childcare to accommodate adult students with children.

• Affordability assesses financial aid, reduced tuition, scholarships or grants that contribute to making degrees affordable.

• Acceleration considers efforts schools make to streamline the time necessary to complete a degree as well as course credit for military training and prior life experience.

• Advancement evaluates career services, graduation rates for part-time students, Pell Grant recipients and transfer students.
