Graduate/Post-Masters Students Seeking Professional Certification

Texas State University offers several professional certification programs for students who have teaching experience, certification, and/or a master's degree.

Click here for a list of programs, faculty advisors, and links to information about admission and requirements for these programs. Follow the instructions below for each step on the pathway toward your certification: applying to your program, registering for coursework, applying for certification testing, and applying for certification.

Please note: criminal background checks are required for progression through the Educator Preparation Program. Based on information recorded in your criminal history, you may be ineligible for issuance of a certificate upon completion of the Educator Preparation Program. If you have a criminal history, the Office Educator Preparation (OEP) recommends you pay for a Preliminary Criminal History Evaluation from the Texas Education Agency, schedule an appointment for free legal counseling services through Texas State University’s Attorney for Students, and disclose this information to the OEP.
