PACE/MAT Information and Application
Program information, including steps for application and related documents, is included in the PACE information/application packet. Applications for the 2014-2015 cohort are accepted January 1-April 1, 2014, with course work beginning during Summer 2014. The priority application period for PACE is extended through April 4, 2014; however, applications may be considered after that date and will be considered at any time at the request of a potential hiring district. Applications to the Post-Baccalaureate teacher certification program (P-B CERT) are available year round.
Important Testing Information
Individuals may demonstrate content proficiency for potential program admission by taking the TExES content exam through the Pre-Admission Content Testing or PACT system. Potential candidates are encouraged to follow the PACT Test Registration procedures (choose no TEA ID) and take the content exam for the target certificate as early as possible in the process.
Passing the content exam early is the most important factor in determining a candidate's eligibility to seek employment as a teacher.
