Since 1899, Tarleton State University has set out on a single path: Ever forward, ever onward.
For well over a century, our campus, our capabilities, our reach and our impact have evolved; our path forward must evolve as well.
At Tarleton, we empower each other with resources that are among the best in the world. We instill passion and conviction to become heroes, trailblazers and champions. We share opportunities to unlock the greatness within. We wish for everyone who studies here and teaches here, who works here and graduates from here to tap into the infinite wells of potential.
At our four Texas locations (Stephenville, Fort Worth, Waco and Bryan) and online, students build their skills in fields as diverse as digital media, fine arts, criminal justice, nursing, engineering, international business and animal science. Some 120 program options provide educational opportunities that range from certifications to bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees.
We are fiercely passionate about our research, student experience, economic impact and athletic prowess —everything we do at Tarleton.
As we equip our students with the knowledge, confidence and core values required to become servant leaders in a highly competitive and interconnected world, we also want them to begin their careers without the burden of crushing loan debt.
That is why Tarleton strives to keep our costs highly competitive and why we provide financial assistance to thousands of qualified students every year.
Tarleton is emerging on the state, national and world stages.
We’re different by design. That’s what makes Tarleton so special. Here, we BLEED PURPLE!
