So what do you need to apply?

Apply here


Potential interns must submit a complete TMATE application by the deadline. Content area TExES scores must be included with the application. Potential interns will be screened using an interview and writing sample along with application components. A rubric will be used to score all components to determine if a candidate will be accepted into the TMATE program. The Education Preparation Council will determine official acceptance.

If a potential intern was previously enrolled in another alternative certification program, a program transfer form must be submitted with the TMATE application. If the potential intern did not receive testing permission from the former program, there is a chance that PACT testing may be possible and should be attempted.

Note: There will be a five year waiting period to apply to TMATE for those who have previously applied for admission to the Tarleton traditional teacher education program and were denied by the department screening or by the EPC. This includes any student who applied, began class and withdrew for any reason.
