Applicant Info

The Region 10 Certification Program is a state-accredited alternative certification program that provides an opportunity for highly-qualified individuals to gain Texas alternative teacher certification. Region 10 prepares participants to be successful educators through a combination of rigorous coursework and field-based experience. The Region 10 Certification Program itself does not offer grants and loans, but its finance department will work with various entities that provide financial assistance to participants. Financial assistance opportunities include the College Access Loan (CAL), the Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS), Education Related Deferment Request of existing school loans (once an internship has been secured), and student loan forgiveness. Candidates are paid a salary during their internship year. Candidates hired by a participating school district receive the same salary as other first-year teachers, minus the program fee (which is payroll deducted monthly). Once certification is earned, the internship is credited as the first year of teaching service.
