38 separate and distinct public universities exist in Texas, of which 34 belong to one of the six state university systems.

University of Houston System[edit]

The University of Houston System has four separate and distinct institutions; each is a stand-alone university and confers its own degrees. Its flagship institution is the University of Houston. The three others are stand-alone universities; they are not branch campuses of the University of Houston.

Admission into each institution is separate, and each institution has distinct admission criteria and requirements.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Note that the seal contains the date 1876, the year in which Texas A&M began classes. This is not a discrepancy as both 1871 (the year the Texas Legislature appropriated funds to begin A&M's construction) and 1876 can be considered the dates of establishment depending on the definition used and the reference sourced (even within the Texas A&M University system).
