Posted by Texas OnCourse on Mar 24, 2021 3:54:16 PM

We’re thrilled to introduce the new Texas OnCourse Academy. We’ve made significant upgrades to improve your learning experience, and we’re excited to unveil the new and improved resource. Old links to the Academy will no longer function. Please update your bookmarks with this new URLhttps://texasoncourse.instructure.com/.

For a quick tour of the new Academy, which is now hosted on Canvas, check out our onboarding articles and videos. If you have questions about your new experience, including about your badges, visit our support page

What's new in the Academy:

  • An easier-to-navigate platform
  • A new My Progress page, which provides a comprehensive view of what you've accomplished in each course
  • Full syllabuses available for each module to easily pop in and find information in a hurry

Here's what else you need to know:

  1. Some modules are no longer available. They need to be updated or are no longer useful to your practice. These modules will no longer be available once the Academy relaunches:
    • Universal College Application  
    • Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA)  
    • Military Enlistment  
    • College Credits  
    • Basic Principles of Postsecondary Pathways  
    • QuestBridge National College Match
  2. Change in reward program. If you are a school counselor, you may be eligible for our reward program. Because of the platform change, we’re postponing the spring reward program window. Your next opportunity to request a reward will be in June.

We know the Texas OnCourse Academy is indispensable to your practice. We hope the improvements ensure that this critical resource is even more relevant, valuable, and easy to use. 

Thank you for trusting Texas OnCourse for your college and career advising needs.
