What is OnRamps?

OnRamps innovative dual-enrollment program brings rigorous courses aligned with the high standards & expectations of The University of Texas at Austin to thousands of students across TX. 

Why take OnRamps?

OnRamps allows students to participate in college level coursework in a supportive environment and with a Little Elm ISD teacher. LEISD teachers partner with the UT Professor to assess student work to determine mastery. This experience provides an authentic entry point to college expectations for students and their families. OnRamps students learn first-hand what it takes to succeed in college, before they get there.

OnRamps students who earn college credit receive a college transcript along with separate high school credit and a high school transcript. OnRamps college course credit is accepted at any public university of college in Texas as well as many private and non-Texas institutions.

Who should take OnRamps?

Students who have been in on-level courses but are ready for a challenge are great candidates for OnRamps. Also, students who have taken AP courses but maybe were not successful on the exam, receiving a 1 or 2, might benefit from an OnRamps course. OnRamps provides those students with multiple opportunities to demonstrate learning instead of one major exam. OnRamps is a good option for students who would like to challenge themselves in a low risk and supportive environment.
