Thank you for your interest in the Texas College Access Network (TxCAN). At this time, TxCAN is revisiting its strategy, program support, metrics and overall direction. We are looking at a series of statewide College Access organizations and models to understand lessons learned and how they might apply to Texas.

In this interim transition phase, we are pausing our regular 2016-2017 TxCAN activities except for continuing to provide the monthly FAFSA data web postings.

We will update this website to share our thinking based on this strategy review.

The Texas College Access Network (TxCAN), an initiative of Educate Texas, is part of the National College Access Network (NCAN) and operates as a sustainable network of agencies and organizations working collaboratively to increase student access and success in postsecondary education. Through TxCAN, organizations (such as the institutions of higher education, school districts, school counselors, non-profit and for-profit college access service providers, and state agencies) will have greater opportunities to work together in furthering a common mission of greater student postsecondary access and success.
