While colleges and universities have been facing overall declines in enrollment in recent years, distance (online) education has been the exception.

As of Fall 2019, among the six public university systems in Texas, TSUS continues to lead the way in the percentage of students pursuing their degrees fully online, up 1% from last year with 15%. Making online education a priority is an appropriate response to the rapid growth in online programs nationwide. By enthusiastically adopting the emerging technologies and best practices related to online education, TSUS institutions have staked a claim in the rapid growth of online education.

The Texas State University System continues to lead online education into the future.
