How Does OnRamps Work?
- OnRamps students are enrolled in a yearlong high school course facilitated by an FWISD teacher who is trained and certified by OnRamps.
- During the first half of the course, OnRamps students complete a series of required assignments that are designated by the Instructor of Record at the University of Texas to determine eligibility to be dually enrolled in the university course.
- Students who successfully complete the high school version of the course receive credit from their campus. In addition, students who successfully complete the spring college course (in OnRamps Precalculus and OnRamps Statistics) receive three Texas Common Core credits from the University, and students who successfully complete the fall and/or spring college course (in OnRamps English and OnRamps History) may receive three to six Texas Common Core credits from the University. *These credits are guaranteed to transfer to any public college or university in Texas.

[* Not all courses are part of every degree plan. Your college or university may apply Texas Common Core credits as electives if the class you take is not part of your degree plan.]
