Important URL Details
EdReady for Texas College Bridge uses custom registration links to allow students to self-register for the program. Any student who has one of your links will be able to register: student rosters are no longer used and no pre-provisioning of student information is needed.
|Teachers should contact their local ISD or school administrator for these URLs. They are not available in a teacher's TCB admin interface.|
As an ISD kicks off use of Texas College Bridge, the primary coordinator(s) will be sent your district's registration links via email. This message will have a subject of: "Getting Started with Texas College Bridge: What You Need to Know." (schools who received details on 8/4/23 should look for a message with this subject: Texas College Bridge: Preparing for the 2023–24 Academic Year
Anyone with an ISD Administrator or School Administrator account can also access the district URLs via the EdReady interface using the instructions below. You need to provide these URLs to the teachers in your district.
New for 2023-24: In addition to students being given a math, English, or both math and English URL, all students should be given the College and Career Support goal.
