The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) provides leadership and coordination for the Texas higher education system.  Since being created by the Texas Legislature in 1965, the Board has worked to achieve excellence for the college education of Texas students.  All courses taught overseas must conform to the regulations set forth by the THECB.  Each study abroad course needs an additional process of notification to the THECB prior to being taught outside the U.S., according to Texas state regulations. This is above and beyond being part of the main course inventory of the institution or part of an approved degree or certification program.  Without having this additional notification process, the University may not submit weighted semester credit hours generated by such courses to the state for formula funding.  For more information about the THECB, visit their website.
