  • Application for Graduation and/or Certification

    Students must apply for graduation during the first month of the semester in which they intend to complete all degree requirements. A graduation fee is required.

    Students who are seeking certification must register for and pass the appropriate State certification exit examinations (ExCET). Students apply for certification once they complete all the requirements, including the appropriate ExCET tests. A fee is required for the Texas Certificate.

    In order to be recommended for degree and/or certification, a student must:

    • Complete the courses listed in the degree and/or certification plan with an overall GPA of at least 2.0.
    • Have a 2.50 GPA or better in the teaching field specialization and in Professional Education courses.

    (Note: To receive an initial Texas teacher certification, students must be free of felony convictions.)
