Significant Changes to Teacher Ed Admissions Requirements

You MUST be admitted to TED in order to:

  • Take your state (TExES) teacher certification exams
  • Student Teach

In addition, as of Fall 2014, you must PASS your TExES certification exams BEFORE you can STUDENT TEACH!

  • Take your state (TExES) teacher certification exams
  • Student teach in Fall 2014 or Spring 2015

it is IMPERATIVE that you turn in your TED Application Packet before the window closes on February 28th.
