Those individuals may pursue enrollment into an Alternative Certification Program (ACP) or enroll in a Post Baccalaureate Program that leads to teacher certification at the university level.

Teachers who are going through an ACP must be issued a Statement of Eligibility before being hired. Each program will differ somewhat in program requirements. Click here to see an overview of the process and a list of approved programs.

Teachers who hold an Out-of-State or Out-of-Country certificate must apply and pay online for a review of credentials and a One-Year certificate with TEA.
