The teacher certification process in Texas is an online system and paper applications are not accepted. Please note, also, that it is your responsibility to apply for certification through TEA. It cannot be initiated by the university. This should be done toward the end of your final semester in the M.A.T. program, just prior to graduation.
For information on the general certification requirements and procedures in Texas go to General Requirements and Procedures for Certification. For information on certification requirements and procedures specific to TWU, Certification Requirements and Procedures.
