If You're An Adult With Some College Credit But Haven't Finished Your Degree and You Live in East Texas, or Dallas, Or Tarrant County, Take A Look At This.

Take it from me, life can get in the way of completing the education you started. Work, family, bills and everything else under the sun can steal your focus, that's why we all admire folks who fought through all that to stay disciplined and get it done.

If you're looking for an opportunity to complete your degree, our friends at one East Texas University has a special program to help you!
