Per the Center for Online Education:  As the largest state in the contiguous U.S., Texas has an abundance of fully and partially online postsecondary programs. The most noteworthy of the state’s online offerings come from the University of Texas and Texas A&M public education systems. These networks cover the entirety of the state, with nearly every campus providing students with a selection of online courses and programs.

In effect, these online public programs let students throughout Texas earn their degree online while having relatively easy access to campus resources. And while online students enroll at a specific branch, the public systems allow distance students to choose from a massive catalogue of courses run by their in-network sister schools.

Texas also has a number of smaller universities and liberal arts colleges with an equally respected selection of online offerings. But before we identify the best online colleges in TX, let’s start by looking at the state of online education and higher education as a whole in Texas today.
