Accelerated Online & Traditional Online Programs

Generally, after submitting your application and required materials, it undergoes a thorough review process that may take upwards of two weeks. Admissions committees carefully assess each application to make informed decisions. Candidates will be notified of their application decision by email.

Our fully online programs are open to United States Citizens, Lawful Permanent Residents, and International Students who do not hold F1, J1, B1, and B2 status. In addition to the required application and admission documents, the following materials must also be submitted:

• Lawful Permanent Residents: Submit a copy of your Permanent Resident Card.
• The TOEFL or IELTS is required if an applicant’s native language is not English or if the applicant does not hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution. It typically takes 10-15 business days for scores to arrive from ETS and be processed by Admissions. The test must be taken in time for results to arrive and be processed in Admissions before completion of the second course. Those wishing to request a waiver of this requirement should contact the graduate advisor.

When choosing individuals to write your recommendation letters, it is important to consider utilizing the following types of individuals: 

• Academic References: Professors or instructors who have taught you in relevant courses and can speak to your academic abilities, performance, and potential for success in the program.
• Professional References: Employers, supervisors, or mentors who can attest to your professional skills, work ethic, and qualifications related to the program or field you are applying to.
Out-of-state students who do not complete the practicum at a UTA College of Education and TEA-approved site and meet all other TEA requirements do not qualify to be recommended for Texas educator certification. If you are an out-of-state student interested in seeking certification outside of Texas, please work with the state agency in the state in which you are seeking certification to determine eligibility and complete any additional requirements. Please see additional information on our website.
  • Strong Academic Performance: Focus on achieving high grades in relevant courses and maintaining a competitive GPA. Demonstrating academic excellence showcases your ability to succeed in the program.
  • Letters of Recommendation: Seek letters of recommendation from individuals who can speak to your abilities, character, and potential for success in the program. Choose recommenders who can provide meaningful insights into your qualifications and strengths.
  • Timely Submission: Ensure that all application materials, including transcripts, program essays, and letters of recommendation, are submitted well before the deadline. Late applications may not receive the same level of consideration.
