What is RELLIS?

The RELLIS Academic Alliance is a University System Center, that allows multiple Texas A&M System institutions and agencies, including Tarleton State University as well as the Blinn College District, to offer selective degree and certificate programs in one location. The RELLIS Campus is not a university, students will enroll in one of the A&M System universities that are offering programs on-site, similar to an academic satellite campus. RELLIS stands for the six Texas A&M Aggies’ core values: respect, excellence, leadership, loyalty, integrity, and selfless service. 

Where is RELLIS located?

The RELLIS Campus is located in Bryan, Texas, on a 2,000-acre facility, previously known as the Riverside Campus. Located adjacent to State Highway 47 and Highway 21, the campus may be accessed via either entrance. The Blinn College Walter C. Schwartz Building is located on the corner of Bryan Road and 4th Street.
