McCoy Experience Workshop

McCoy College requires all admitted students to complete the McCoy Experience Workshop. 

This online workshop is designed to inform McCoy College students of their responsibilities, important degree information, and the many opportunities in McCoy College. 

Students who are currently part of the Personalized Academic and Career Exploration (PACE) center, will be required to complete the workshop upon finishing their time with PACE. All other students will be required to complete the workshop upon being admitted to McCoy College.

Students will receive instructions and deadline information via their Texas State email account. Students who do not satisfy the requirement or do not pass the quiz at the end of the workshop will receive a hold on their registration. 

The workshop is hosted in the TRACS learning environment.
