Extension Studies

OXP offers many college courses through Extension Studies to support the TXST academic departments/schools. Extension courses may be offered face-to-face, online, or hybrid/blended. Our faculty-led Study-in-America program provides students with the experience of studying beyond the traditional classroom setting. Enrollment in an extension class does not require or constitute admittance to Texas State University.
