Program Admission Info & Requirements


Special Requirements

Students complete their junior and senior year of professional courses at the University's teaching facilities in San Marcos and the clinical affiliates. Students are selected in the Spring semester of their sophomore year for the following Fall class. The application deadline is March 1. Because of the limited number of students that can be accepted into the program, students should maintain an overall grade-point average above 2.50 (on a 4-point scale).

Admission to TEXAS STATE does not guarantee admission to the program. Admission to the program is competitive and selective. The academic sequence begins during the fall semester. Enrollment is limited by student/faculty ratios in the clinical components of the program.

Application packets for the CLS Program are available at the
