The Principal Certificate

If you have a master’s degree, you may take 21 additional face-to-face hours through our department and earn the credentials needed to become a campus principal or an assistant principal. This principal certificate program is fully aligned with the Educational Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC) standards and designed for classroom teachers who want to advance in K-12 education.

The Superintendent Certificate

The fully online Superintendent Academic Partnership Certificate Program was collaboratively developed by UT Arlington and area school district personnel to ensure that program participants acquire the skills and background information needed to become practicing superintendents. This non-thesis certificate program (15 hours, six courses) is fully aligned with the Educational Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC) standards and designed for administrators who already have principal certification and a conferred master’s degree who want to advance in the K-12 education arena.

Texas students who would like to be authorized to take the Texas superintendent exam must meet state, course, and documentation requirements and pass the practice superintendent exam.  Students must come to the UTA Campus to take the practice exam.
