Information for Out-of-State Students Who Complete the Accelerated Online Programs
If you are seeking certification in your state, please remember that you are not eligible for state certification in Texas. This is because your practicum experience was completed outside of Texas. Therefore, The University of Texas at Arlington cannot complete state university recommendation forms that require verification of completion of a state approved educator preparation program. However, the College of Education will provide you a memo that you can present to your state agency for consideration for determining if you are eligible for certification. Complete the form and submit as directed. Once the information you provide is confirmed, you will be emailed the memo.
Instructions for Filling out Forms
Please use Adobe Acrobat Reader or Adobe Acrobat to fill out these PDF forms after you have downloaded them to your computer. Acrobat Reader is free and is available from Adobe for PC and Mac. Adobe Reader can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store for iOS (iPhone / iPad). Adobe Reader is available for free from on the Google Play store for Android. Web browsers will display PDFs but cannot be used to fill out PDF forms; please use the save a copy function in your browser's document viewer to save a copy to your computer that you can then open with Acrobat Reader.
Apple iMac/Macbook users: most Macs use Preview as their default PDF viewer, so make sure to open PDFs using Acrobat Reader (or Acrobat) specifically.
Last resort option: if you are unable to fill out the form electronically becuase you are not able to access Acrobat Reader, then you should print the form, fill it out by hand, scan, and submit as a scan. We encourage you, however, to please submit an electronic copy if at all possible.
