TESTING FOR CERTIFICATION
Testing for Certification
In addition to degree requirements, students must attain passing scores on the Examination for the Certification of Educators in Texas (ExCET) and/or the Texas Examination of Educator Standards (TExES). Because Tarleton State University must verify eligibility for the ExCET/TExES, students must consult with their academic advisors or the Testing Coordinator for Certification to determine when they are eligible to begin testing.
Before the student is granted permission to register for a test, all departmental requirements must be met. Requirements may include successful completion of the Representative Form, attendance at review sessions and/or workshops, and/or completion of specific courses. Registration information for the ExCET/TExES may be obtained by contacting the Coordinator of Testing, Certification and Program Accountability in Educator Preparation Services, Suite 101, Mathematics Building or by calling 254-968-1908.
