Information About COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Latest Update : May 11, 2020

The past few days it's been truly exciting to see some of you back on campus finishing up the spring semester! TSTC is known for our hands-on education, and we want to make sure that each of you has the skills that you need to be successful in your great-paying job!

While some of you are returning to campus, remember that safety is our number one priority and we all have a role to play to make sure we stay healthy.

  • If you are attending classes:
    • Wear your face covering at all times.
    • Use social distancing by staying 6 feet away from others.
    • Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds.
  • Perhaps most importantly, stay home if you:
    • Don't feel well.
    • Are pending COVID-19 results.
    • Are living with someone who has COVID 19 symptoms.
    • Don't have classes that require you to come to campus.

In short, stay home if you think you might have been exposed or are sick. Our Access Learning & Accommodations team will be glad to assist you with communicating with your instructors to make sure you can make up your work.

As a reminder, TSTC has emergency aid available. If you have not applied, this grant aid is still available to you! Even if you have applied for emergency aid, additional assistance may be available through the CARES Act.

At TSTC, we pledge to create and cultivate a Culture of Caring to do whatever it takes to help you reach your goals. We hope we are able to do so with this grant. A short application can be found here. You can also reach out to your Enrollment Coach if you need help filling out the form.

We are still providing remote services and are excited to serve you! Click here for our latest COVID-19 information. We are a #TSTCfamily and during difficult times, families help each other.


Stay Safe,

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.
