The Texas State University System's eight colleges and universities offer something for everyone. Our campuses stretch across the expansive landscape of Texas, reflecting the diversity of our state and its people. But there's one thing all of our institutions have in common: a strong commitment to our students.

Our full-time faculty teach 20 percent more student credit hours than the state average, meaning they spend more time in the classroom, educating and inspiring students. This student-focused environment means our graduates are better prepared to start their careers when they receive their degrees. In fact, 80 percent of our graduates are employed or in graduate school upon completion -- the highest percentage of any university system in Texas.

We invite you to join the nearly 83,000 students who have chosen the Texas State University System. Learn more by exploring our website and those of our member institutions.
