September 6, 2019
The Fall 2019 semester may have begun, but students across the Blinn College District can still earn college credit with 12- and 8-week courses.
Fall 12-week classes begin Wednesday, Sept. 18, and registration is available through Sept. 17. Second 8-week courses begin Wednesday, Oct. 16, and registration is available through Oct. 16. These 8- and 12-week courses cover the same material and earn the same credit as regular 16-week courses. By moving at a faster pace, these courses allow students to reach their academic and career goals more quickly, and with the option to enroll in online courses, students can enjoy a fast, focused learning experience that is built around their schedule.
Prospective students can apply to Blinn via the ApplyTexas.org application. Once admitted, they can register for classes at https://my.blinn.edu or in person at the Brenham Campus Administration Building (802 Green St.), Bryan Tejas Center (3125 Texas Ave., Suite 1900), Schulenburg Campus (100 Ranger Dr.), or Sealy Campus (3701 Outlet Mall Dr., Suite 250). Blinn recommends that all students visit with an academic advisor, and students can chat online with a Blinn admissions specialist between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at www.blinn.edu/admissions.
Blinn offers courses online and at its Brenham, Bryan, RELLIS, Schulenburg, and Sealy campuses. Blinn Online offers students greater flexibility in scheduling their courses, and academic and student support are available through the College’s online student portal, myBLINN. Blinn offers a variety of resources for students considering online courses at www.blinn.edu/online, including an orientation course, tips for taking an online course, tutorials, and frequently asked questions.
At the RELLIS Campus, Blinn courses transfer seamlessly into the four-year bachelor’s degree programs offered by The Texas A&M University System regional universities also located onsite. For more information, visit www.blinn.edu/RELLIS.
Blinn’s academic transfer rate is the highest in the state, according to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and Blinn has partnered with Texas A&M University to develop pioneering co-enrollment programs such as the Texas A&M-Blinn TEAM Program, the Texas A&M Engineering Academy at Blinn-Bryan, and the Texas A&M Engineering Academy at Blinn-Brenham.
According to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s CollegeForAllTexans.com, out-of-district Blinn students who enroll in 30 credit hours during the 2019-20 academic year save $4,036 – approximately 42% – in tuition and fees compared to students at public universities across the state. 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. Current and prospective students can complete a single application to apply for all Blinn scholarships at www.blinn.edu/scholarships.
