Student teacher application

  • Step 1: Make sure to use Google Chrome as your browser.
  • Step 2: Fill out the application, do not copy/paste information and do not leave any blanks.
  • Step 3: University Course information page will ask for your course ID, if you're in an alternative certification program enter 1234 as the course ID. If you're with a university/program other than UTA, it'll pull up the university as UTA (that's ok, just leave it as-is).

After completing the application, send the following:

  • A scan of your driver's license
  • Syllabus or program letter 

Once application is submitted and documents are sent to either or (depending on if you’re observing or student teaching) the HR Talent Selection team will notify you with background clearance and next steps. Until then, you are not cleared to start.
