The University of Texas at Arlington College of Education offers state (TEA), regional (SACS) and nationally (NCATE) accredited programs to prepare students to for Texas Standard Certification. Our programs train students to become classroom teachers in elementary, middle, all-level and high school in a variety of content area with multiple supplemental options. Advanced certification programs prepare students for classroom teaching, Principal as an Instructional Leader, or Reading Specialist. All College of Education programs provide candidates with the basics of child and adolescent development, instructional design and classroom management with several diverse, interactive fieldwork and clinical teaching experiences.
Educators from another state or country must apply for a review of their credentials through TEA.
If an Educator plans to move to another state, it is most efficient and beneficial for them to complete the certification process in Texas then apply for a teaching license in the new state. Contact the state education office in the state you are moving to for information on their review and application process. They may request that a Verification Form be completed by the Educator Preparation Program (EPP) the Educator completed. Please send those requests to the Certification Officer.
