On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the entire Blinn family, I am pleased to welcome you to Blinn College.

For nearly 130 years, Blinn has offered high quality, affordable educational opportunities in a uniquely personalized and friendly atmosphere.

The premier two-year college in Texas, Blinn College has one of the state’s highest percentages of students who transfer to and graduate from top universities. Blinn has a proud and rich tradition with many nationally recognized programs, including an athletic program that boasts 26 national championships. Additionally, Blinn recently earned an historic honor for community engagement, as one of only six community colleges in the nation selected for recognition by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Only seven colleges and universities in Texas received this recognition. Few colleges can offer such a storied history of “Proven” success.

With a focus on students and teaching excellence, Blinn offers a robust and modern variety of academic transfer courses, allied health programs, workforce training and continuing education classes for more than 18,000 students. We serve students throughout a 13 county district that encompasses four unique campuses. Our flexible distance education programs expand the opportunities available to earn an education at Blinn, wherever you may wish to study.

Thank you for your interest in Blinn College. Schedule a tour with us today and let us show you why Blinn College is the “Proven” choice for all your educational needs.
