Admission Process

The admissions phase is the first step to enrolling into an online program. An applicant fills out an online application in order to apply for certification. General information is collected to properly review each candidate.

Typically, a candidate will choose one certification area to pursue (i.e., Math 7-12), but sometimes are granted approval for multiple content areas. The major admission standards an applicant must meet in Texas is to possess a Bachelor's degree from an accredited university and a GPA that is 2.50 or higher.

The overall or last 60 GPA hours must be 2.50 or higher. Otherwise, additional certification requirements may be necessary when your GPA falls below 2.50.

If the applicant is a senior in college about to graduate, they might be eligible for contingency admission. This allows an applicant to start a program while they are finishing a Bachelor's degree. If the applicant fails to obtain a conferred Bachelor's degree, they cannot extend the contingency status.

The admission process will also require several credential items. Most important is to send in an official conferred transcript and supporting transcripts for transfer credits.

An acceptance letter will be issued once a candidate's approval is complete.
