School Counseling Certification

Is graduation coming up? Are you looking at taking your certification exam to be a school counselor? We have the details you need. Take a look at how the process works and what you can do to start preparing.


How do I sign up?

During your last semester of the school counseling program, the certification officer, Julia Tidwell, in the School of Education will get permission from your professors for you to take the TExES exam for school counseling. Then, the certification officer will reach out to you with more details on how to sign up for the test.

Remember, the certification exam can cost anywhere from $65-$131 to take.


How do I prepare?

Paying attention in class is a great start, but there are some things you'll need to do in order to prepare for the exam. Ask your advisor for specific study materials and practice tests you can use to get ready to ace it.

Breathe easy. The current pass rate at Texas Wesleyan is 100%. Your professors are already doing a great job of getting ready to be a great school counselor.
