May News for Students
It’s that time again: Time for graduations, summer holidays and then…COLLEGE! At Texas College Bridge, we’re here to help you get ready for that important next step.

This past school year, a lot of students have already earned their certificates of completion, and we want to help more of you join them this spring. With your certificate in hand, once you graduate high school, you’ll be able to get a TSI exemption from more than 90 colleges and universities across the state.
