Step 1

Contact your Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) field counselor and notify him or her that you are interested in Criss Cole Rehabilitation Center (CCRC) and the Post-Secondary Program (PSP). Your counselor will need to assist you in completing most of the steps necessary in the CCRC/PSP application process.

Step 2

You will need to arrange a tour of both the Post-Secondary Program and the Criss Cole Rehabilitation Center (CCRC). Both tours are typically conducted on the same day. To contact the CCRC admissions office to arrange a tour, call (512) 377-0300. Your TWC Counselor will make a referral request to CCRC for the tour and will need to indicate that you are interested in the Post-Secondary Program.

Step 3

Download an MS Word version of the application. Please note: The application process does not guarantee entrance into PSP. A committee composed of staff from TSBVI and CCRC review each application, individual services received, and progress in those services prior to approval. To receive an application by email or US mail, contact us at .

Step 4

Complete a Criss Cole Rehabilitation Center (CCRC) application with your TWC field counselor. A completed packet will need to include the following documentation:

  1. Applications for PSP and CCRC.
  2. Standardized State of Texas Eye Report, completed by an Ophthalmologist current within one year.
  3. Current physical examination within one year, with a TB test. If you have diabetes, you must also provide a BUN and Creatinine blood level current within one year.

  5. Release/ Consent to Request "Confidential Information or CB-3VR if a current TWC consumer.
  6. Educational assessments, vocational assessment data, official high school transcript, and Vocational Diagnostic Unit Assessment (if available).

Note: An application will not be considered complete until the student and his/her family have toured both the Post-Secondary Program and Criss Cole Rehabilitation Facility.
