Dashboard

The Texas State University System does more with less - with better result - than any other university system in Texas. With a 59 percent increase in degree production over the last decade, TSUS institutions are responding to the demands of our growing state and producing graduates who contribute to Texas' economic vitality and quality of life. The Texas State University System's state appropriation per student is 28 percent lower than the state average, and our tuition and fees are among the lowest in the state. Our Productivity Dashboard provides data on these and other important performance measures.
