Rehabilitation Programs Division

Post-Secondary Education Programs (Academic and Vocational)

Program

The purpose of offering post-secondary programs in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) is to give offenders an opportunity for rehabilitation by developing their mental skills and providing marketable job training skills so they can re-enter society as successful productive citizens. Career and technical training also addresses the TDCJ's need for qualified offender workers.

Post-secondary programs are provided through contracts with colleges and universities serving the geographic areas where units are located. Offenders wishing to participate in these post-secondary programs must meet the criteria for admission of each college or university. The TDCJ has criteria that must also be met, and offenders must receive security and classification clearance before entry into the programs.
