Educator Certification Program
Pre-Admission Content Test (PACT) is a route to take content-area certification tests before entering an Educator Preparation Program (EPP) to demonstrate content mastery. The results are used as documentation when you apply for a teaching certificate. For more information about PACT, click on this link.
PACT: Testing Eligibility
Individuals who hold a bachelor's degree or higher from an accredited college or university or are scheduled to receive a bachelor's degree before being placed in a classroom are allowed to take a content exam for purposes of admission into the following types of EPPs: alternative certification programs, university alternative certification programs, or university post-baccalaureate programs. An individual may not be placed in a classroom as a teacher of record under this section until receiving a bachelor's degree. Also, candidates may take a PACT if they have never been admitted to a Texas-approved EPP or are transferring to a different EPP. If a candidate is transferring to a different EPP, the candidate's current EPP must complete a TEA Candidate Transfer Form.
PACT: Test Registration
If a candidate for certification does not already have a TEA ID number, the candidate should not create a profile on TEAL. Register on the Texas Educator Examination Program website.
