College Teaching - Certificate

Today, colleges and universities expect future faculty to be equally skilled in research and teaching. The Department of Educational Administration and Human Resource Development in the College of Education and Human Development offers a College Teaching Certificate Program for masters and doctoral level graduate students across the university who are interested in learning and applying the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Current Texas A&M University students who are in good academic standing can begin taking certificate courses any semester. To be eligible for the certificate, students must complete the current student application  prior to starting course work.

Interested applicants who are not current Texas A&M University students will apply through the ApplyTexas application. The major to select is “College Teaching, Certificate”.  Application fee: a non-refundable $65 application fee for domestic applicants and $90 application fee for international applicants. Official transcripts from all colleges or universities attended are required to be submitted to the Graduate Admissions Office. More details can be found at

Applicants will be assigned a University Identification Number (UIN) 24-48 hours after submitting the application. This UIN will be needed to access the Applicant Information System (AIS) to complete the remaining application requirements.
