Campus image of Brazosport College

Brazosport College, located in Lake Jackson, Texas, began operations in 1968, nearly twenty years after its establishment was approved by voters. The school was originally known as Brazosport Junior College, and was funded by a tax approved by voters to finally establish the school. By 1970 the school changed its name to the current to better reflect the goals and focus of the school. The first year of operation the school admitted over 800 students, today the school educated over 25,000 students annually. In 2003 Brazosport College became on of three colleges approved by the state to offer four year degree programs, which began being offered at the school at the start of the 2005 semester.


Brazosport currently offers a single bachelor degree program in applied technology alongside the associate and certificate programs it has traditionally provided. The programs offered are either academic or career oriented. Career oriented programs offer students the skills and knowledge necessary to enter the workforce immediately after graduation, and result in either a certificate or associate degree. Certificate programs are generally shorter than degree programs due to the absence of general education courses in the curriculum. Academic programs allow students to complete the first two years of a four year education at a low cost, and provide transfer opportunities to four year institutions to continue toward a bachelor degree upon completion of the program.

Programs offered include:
