In 1998, as the lead institution, Texas State joined forces with other area universities and colleges to establish the Round Rock Higher Education Center, known today as Texas State University Round Rock Campus (RRC). In 2005, Texas State opened the Round Rock Campus in Williamson County, which offers both bachelor’s and master’s programs.

Texas State is addressing the educational needs of North Austin and the Central Texas area at the RRC. Located at 1555 University Boulevard in northeast Round Rock, the RRC offers small class size as well as supportive, engaging faculty and staff in a state-of-the-art collegiate environment. The RRC offers upper level coursework in select bachelor’s degree programs, as well as several post-baccalaureate certificates and master’s degree programs. At the undergraduate level, students transfer hours to the RRC from a community college, another university or the San Marcos campus. Students may also complete some lower-level courses online or via Texas State Correspondence. Round Rock students pay the same tuition as those attending in San Marcos, but certain fees may be waived.

The RRC offers the following undergraduate degree programs:

  • Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences, major in Applied Arts and Sciences
  • Bachelor of Arts, major in Computer Science
  • Bachelor of Arts, major in Mass Communication
  • Bachelor of Arts, major in Psychology
  • Bachelor of Business Administration, major in Management
  • Bachelor of Science, major in Interdisciplinary Studies (Early Childhood through Grade 6 ESL Generalist)
  • Bachelor of Science, major in Computer Science
  • Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice, major in Criminal Justice Law Enforcement
  • Bachelor of Science in Nursing, major in Nursing
  • Bachelor of General Studies, major in General Studies

To be eligible to register for Texas State classes at the RRC, students must have completed their sophomore year or at least 45 hours from the prescribed degree plans above. Students who intend to complete their junior- and senior-level classes at RRC must submit the same admission documents and meet the same admission requirements as any potential Texas State University student. After admission, however, the procedures are different for the RRC.

It is, therefore, very important to follow the Getting Started procedures listed on the RRC website at
