For Counselors

Texas State gives each student the opportunities and support they need to reach their full potential. We’re the fifth-largest public university in Texas, but with small classes (median class is 23), a warm, inviting campus and robust student services, we cultivate a culture of inclusiveness.

With majors in nearly 200 bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs, students will find limitless ways to build their futures.

If we can help you or one of your students, please let us know. Thank you for your dedication to helping students access higher education opportunities. We value your partnership and welcome your questions and feedback.
