Courses have carefully been selected and crafted to meet the educational needs of students, as well as the requirements of the Texas Educational Agency and the State Board of Education. All students must pass the EC-12 Pedagogy Certification exam along with their content related exam(s).

For information about certification, see the Certification Handbook. To be sure that they are meeting the requirements for graduation and certification, students should meet with Heather Doyle the semester before student teaching.

There is a 5-time limit on taking a single certification exam. Any tester who has attempted a test (regardless of how any attempts before August 31, 2015) may test up to four more times after September 1, 2015. Additional attempts would require SBEC permission.
