The Office of Distance and Extended Learning is Texas State's home for courses and programs offered through correspondence, extension, and continuing education. This office also provides information on Texas State's distance learning programs, courses, initiatives, and resources to our community of distance learners and educators.
Many states have prescribed an “authorization” process for institutions from other states that deliver online courses to their state residents. Therefore, before accepting enrollments for online and correspondence courses from students residing outside of Texas and not planning on relocating to Texas, Texas State must be in compliance with the distance learning regulations of the states in which students reside.
For more information on state authorization and for a list of states in which Texas State is in compliance with state authorization rules, visit the State Authorization page.
Texas State School of Social Work's online MSW (Master of Social Work) program was ranked 11th among Top Colleges for Online Social Work Programs by BestColleges.com. These rankings are based on several factors, including school and program reputation, student satisfaction, peer and instructional quality, and overall affordability.
See the Schedule of Classes for a list of courses offered online, on evenings and weekends, and at the Round Rock Higher Education Center. Listings are divided accordingly on the Schedule of Classes main page.
