Rehabilitation Programs Division
Post-Secondary Education Programs (Academic and Vocational)
The purpose of offering post-secondary programs in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) is to give inmates 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 address the TDCJ's need for qualified inmate workers.
Post-secondary programs are provided through contracts with colleges and universities serving the geographic areas where units are located. Inmates 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 inmates must receive security and classification clearance before entry into the programs.
The Post-Secondary for Contracted Personnel Training schedule for the FY 2022-2023 is as follows:
