What is Extended Enrollment?
The Extended enrollment option supports you in earning your Texas teaching certificate as you continue your career as a teacher. This is an option for Texas Master of Arts in Teaching students and Texas One-Year Alternate Route students who have satisfied all program requirements but will remain enrolled in their program as a non-credit bearing student to complete outstanding Texas State certification requirements.
What Does this mean?
- You will need to apply for and be issued a probationary or intern certificate and secure a position as teacher of record in an assignment that matches your certification category.
- You can remain on extended enrollment for up to three terms (summer, fall, and spring).
- You will not be eligible for any federal financial aid nor be eligible for an in-school deferment.
- You will not be eligible to request a degree conferred transcript but can request a non- degree conferred transcript or enrollment letter here.
- For MAT students, your degree will be conferred at the end of the term when your extended enrollment concludes.
How Much will it cost?
- You will be charged an extended enrollment fee of $275 per term plus a $550 observation fee for each term in which observations are required. These charges will be reflected on your billing statement. These charges are valid for the 2020-2021 school year.
- If you have a passing TExES content test score by June 22, 2020, you will not be charged the $275 extended enrollment fee for the summer term. If you need more time to pass the TExES content test, you will be charged the extended enrollment fee for that term.
