Texas Educator Preparation Program Accreditation Statuses
TEA staff are recommending that the UTA program be assigned accredited status under the Accountability System for Educator Preparation at the February 21, 2020 State Board for Educator Certification meeting.
Military Service, Training, or Education
In accordance with 19 TAC 228.35 (a)(5), UTA's College of Education evaluates and may accept military service, training, or education toward the fulfillment of program prerequisite admission requirements. Military service, training, or education must be directly related to the certificate being sought and may not take the place of certification examinations. Service, training, or education may not count as part of an internship, clinical teaching, or practicum requirements and must be provided by an approved Educator Preparation Program or accredited institution of higher education within the past five years. The Program Director will determine whether or not military service, training, or education is relevant and could be used as a substitution.
