UPDATE: UNT Dallas will NOT host a TexPREP program during the summer of 2018. Regrettably, funding was not made available for this program.

There are other TexPREP sites in the Dallas area, we encourage you to check them out if you are interested in this program. Most of the Dallas County Community Colleges offer it.
Cedar Valley College is the closest to UNT Dallas and their website can be found here: https://www.cedarvalleycollege.edu/services/pages/texprep.aspx
