Open Enrollment Starts Now!

Office Hours:  Monday - Friday  8AM - 5PM

(The office may be open after 5PM if there are any subject classes/PDT going on that day. It is always a good idea to call ahead.)


Since December 14, 2008, degreed individuals who have never been admitted to a TEA approved, Educator Preparation Program (EPP) can challenge an exam through Pre-Admission Content Tests (PACT).  This can demonstrate content proficiency for possible admission into an EPP in Texas.


If you have a bachelors degree and you've NEVER been enrolled in an alternative certification program, you can challenge the Texas Examinations of Educator Standards™ (TExES™).  Click on the link below for more details

Pre-Admissions Content Testing**

**Taking PACT does not ensure admittance into a program.
