Find Your Certification Area

  • Core Subject Areas Banner

    Texas has requirements that must be met before you may be certified as a teacher. We will evaluate your transcript with you and help you learn the certification and assessment requirements for the area in which you wish to teach. The first requirement for the P.a.C.E. Program is you must hold a Bachelor's degree from an accredited institute of higher education. If the transcript review does not indicate the appropriate number of hours of successful course completion in the core area, P.a.C.E. applicants pursuing certification in core subject areas will need to take and pass the appropriate TXPACT exam that corresponds with the content of interest.
