Latest Update : March 27, 2020
Since our last communication with you, TSTC has continued to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) developments. As of today, we have not made any further adjustments to the campus operation plans that you were informed of last week. All campuses will remain in a remote-operations mode, and will continue to be closed to students and visitors.
Our faculty have spent this week developing remote learning activities for you which are scheduled to begin on Monday, March 30. This week, you should have received communications from your instructors. Please be sure and check your spam and trash files in your email if you don't think you have received them. The remote learning activities will be tailored according to your class and you should expect those details from your instructor.
We are continuing to make plans for a return to normal operations for students on Tuesday, April 14. The College plans to continue providing you with weekly email updates until we return to normal operations.
Although TSTC campuses will be closed to visitors, enrollment coaches will be available online or by email to assist you with registration which begins on April 6. Your enrollment coaches can be contacted by email. We are a TSTC family, and in times of need, families stick together. Below are important links and helpful information for questions you might have.

The health and well-being of the TSTC community is our highest priority. With the arrival of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States, and more specifically in Texas, rest assured that we are continuously monitoring the situation and receiving updates from health officials daily. We are committed to keeping you informed as the situation evolves by providing updates via emails and on the TSTC Portal for students and employees.
The College is following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. Those recommendations include suggested steps for people who have traveled recently. Though we’re not aware that anyone in the TSTC family has traveled to impacted locations, if you have traveled to locations considered CDC Level 2 and 3 travel advisory locations for coronavirus we recommend that you self-isolate for 14 days before returning to campus.
The best action you can take at this time is to follow the recommendations of public health officials and wash your hands regularly, avoid close contact with people who are sick and take other preventative measures.
