Educator Preparation Program Report Card

The information in this brochure provides program data that demonstrates Tarleton State University's level of attainment on the data elements required for annual state and federal reporting.

COVID UPDATE - Educator Preparation Services will notify students of any updates to field experiences or clinical teaching requirements as we get that information. Please be sure to check your Tarleton email often.

Educator Preparation Services is designed to assist both undergraduate and graduate students.

Undergraduate students who are seeking initial teacher certification through the Tarleton teacher education program are guided through the program from the time they make application until they complete all field experiences, testing, and are recommended for certification. Please see the Program Disclosures for important information related to criminal history and the ability to become certified.

Our testing and certification services are also provided to graduate students seeking initial teacher certification via the TMATE alternative certification program and to students seeking a professional certificate through one of our graduate level certification programs.

You must apply for a review of credentials by the Texas Education Agency if you are seeking certification in Texas and you hold a standard certificate issued by another state or territory. Follow the instructions on the TEA website.
