Welcome to the THS College & Career Center page!  My name is Emily Nichols, the College and Career Counselor for THS.  I have been in Tomball ISD since 2007, and began my career in education in 1999.  I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a BA in Fashion Merchandising, and a minor in Business.  In 2004 I received my Masters of Education in School Counseling from Sam Houston State University.
 
I am here to meet your students college and career needs.  Students are always welcome in Cougar Corner (College & Career Center).  Parents may simply contact me and schedule an appointment.  I work with all grade levels in different areas of college and career readiness throughout each year.  Many events will be held each year for students to learn more about post high school options, careers, financial aid, and much more.  Make sure you check out the many resources I have posted for you.  The Links section is organized by area of interest with many helpful links for students and parents.
 
I am the Dual Credit Coordinator for our campus.  You will find helpful information on Dual Credit for our campus. We partner with Lone Star College, Tomball.  Our LSC Dual Credit Advisors are Latoya Lewis, Katerina Wingfield, and Donna Fitzpatrick.
 
We also work closely with our Lone Star College, College Connections Advisor, Heidi Ewing.  Heidi comes to THS several times a month, and works with our students interested in attending Lone Star College after graduation.

TAMU Engineering Academy for Graduating Seniors

Seniors,

 

Are you still trying to decide where you will obtain your engineering/engineering technology/computer science degree from for next fall? Do you want more options? There is still time to apply to be an Aggie Engineering student through the Texas A&M Engineering Academies!

Students admitted to an Engineering Academy are Texas A&M engineering students from day one, co-enrolled at Texas A&M University in the College of Engineering and at a partner community college. Students enroll in math, science and core curriculum courses through the community college and have the unique opportunity to enroll in Texas A&M engineering courses taught by a Texas A&M professor on the community college campus.  The Academies provide many benefits including smaller classes and substantial financial savings! 

Apply today at no cost to you!

 

 

The application process is a two-step process.

  1. Students submit an application to the community college via www.applytexas.org and complete a quick interest/prequalification form. The community college will prequalify select students based on math readiness. 
  2. If prequalified, the link to the Texas A&M University Engineering Academy application will be provided.  The deadline to submit the Academy application is June 30 at 11:59 PM CST.  All supporting credentials must be received by the Office of Admissions at Texas A&M University by close of business June 30. 
Have questions?  Please reach out to Dr. De Sousa, he's happy to help!
