Tradition, Pride & Spirit - Tarleton's Legacy
Tarleton State University offers the value of a Texas A&M University System degree with its own brand of personal attention, individual opportunities, history, traditions and real community.
Located in the heart of Stephenville and encompassing a 173-acre main campus just an hour southwest from the metro opportunities of Fort Worth, Tarleton is one of the best university values in Texas and the perfect place for students to begin a future.
Tarleton offers the resources of a major public university, including 65+ undergraduate, 20+ graduate and a Doctor of Education degree, as well as cutting edge academic facilities and faculty experts with extensive university and industry experience—all with the personal attention, warmth and faculty interaction expected from a smaller college.
Tarleton has extended its reach beyond Stephenville and is rapidly expanding undergraduate and graduate programs online and in Waco, Midlothian and the Southwest Metroplex including Johnson, Parker and Tarrant counties.
