Texas announces new higher education tool

Texas announces new higher education tool

Wed Jun 5, 2013

The state of Texas has recently debuted a new online, interactive tool designed to make the most relevant data about public higher education in Texas available to everyone.

The tool, Compare College TX, is the first of its kind in the state to include comprehensive earnings data from College Measures. Its aim is to increase transparency and accountability for higher education institutions.

With Compare College TX, located online at www.comparecollegetx.com, data concerning the state’s two- or four-year schools, including Brazosport College, can be viewed and compared to other schools across Texas.

Compare College TX is an online, mobile-friendly, interactive website targeted to parents, students and high school advisors to help answer questions that matter most to prospective students, such as how much will this college cost, what percentage of students does this college accept, and how likely will I graduate on time from this college? Compare College TX enhances an existing suite of online tools designed to help Texas students and their parents plan for college in three stages: inspiration, exploration, information, and application.

The tool was introduced on May 15during a live-stream launch by Chairman of Texas Higher Education Board Fred W. Heldenfels IV.
