Prospective students who included higher education among their New Year’s resolutions can register for Blinn College’s spring 2018 semester through Monday, Jan. 15.
Blinn courses are available on its Brenham, Bryan, Schulenburg, and Sealy campuses, as well as online. Blinn’s online programs allow students greater flexibility in scheduling their courses, and academic and student support are available through the College’s online student portal, myBlinn. Blinn also offers a variety of resources for students considering online courses at www.blinn.edu/online/students, including an orientation course, tips for taking an online course, tutorials, and frequently asked questions.
Students who register for courses must pay the same day to remain enrolled in their courses.
Regardless of whether students choose to enroll in online or face-to-face courses, they benefit from Blinn’s exceptional academic reputation. Blinn has articulation agreements in place with 39 four-year institutions, and its academic transfer rate regularly ranks among the highest in the state and the nation. According to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB), Blinn’s academic transfer rate of 34.2 percent ranks second in the state and far exceeds the statewide average of 21.1 percent.
Blinn’s academic excellence is matched only by its affordability. According to the THECB’s CollegeForAllTexans.com, Blinn students who take 30 credit hours during the 2017-18 academic year will save $3,717, or 42 percent, compared to state residents at the average Texas public university.
In addition to Blinn’s low tuition and fees, the Blinn Foundation offers more than 200 endowed scholarships available to incoming and returning students from a wide range of backgrounds, majors, and experiences. Blinn students and prospective students also can register for external scholarships and participate in grant programs.
