Partnership with Tarleton and OnRamps

purple OnRamps

OnRamps is a signature initiative developed by the University of Texas at Austin that provides high-quality learning and instruction to high school students and teachers across Texas. Students have the opportunity to earn college credit through dual enrollment courses, and teachers receive robust professional learning and development to deepen their classroom impact. Tarleton State University and OnRamps have partnered to serve students and teachers across school districts in Bosque, Comanche, Ellis, Erath, Hamilton, Hood, Johnson, Palo Pinto, Parker, and Somervell counties.

Beginning in Fall 2022, high school students in the Tarleton OnRamps service area may earn college and high school credits in precalculus and college algebra courses. Specifically, students will receive learning and instruction from their high school teacher and Tarleton college instructor through dual enrollment over a traditional school year.
