On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the entire Blinn College family, I am pleased to welcome you to Blinn College. Since 1883, Blinn has offered high-quality, affordable educational opportunities in a uniquely personalized and friendly atmosphere.

The premier two-year college in Texas, Blinn has one of the nation’s highest percentages of students who transfer to and graduate from top universities and earned national recognition for its affordable educational excellence and its commitment to community service and civic responsibility.

With a focus on students and teaching excellence, Blinn offers a robust variety of academic transfer courses, health science programs, workforce training, and continuing education classes for almost 20,000 students on campuses in Bryan, Brenham, Schulenburg, and Sealy, as well as online.

Blinn offers job seekers the skills and credentials they need to succeed in the region’s fast-growing industries, and partners with local businesses to provide skills development training for incumbent employees. Each year, Blinn programs and students make an estimated $345.3 million impact on the local economy.

Blinn has been named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest accolade an educational institution can receive from the federal government for its commitment to service and civic engagement, and received Carnegie Classification from the Carnegie Foundation for Advancement of Teaching. That honor places Blinn among the top five percent of colleges and universities in the nation.

Blinn has been recognized as one of the most affordable large community colleges in the nation. Students who take 30 credit hours save approximately $3,835 in tuition and fees compared to the average Texas public university. We also offer more than 220 endowed scholarships.

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