TARLETON STATE UNIVERSITY provides an innovative and transformative educational experience, offering more than one hundred undergraduate and graduate degrees.

Tarleton was founded as John Tarleton College in 1899 and has been a member of The Texas A&M University System since 1917. Classes are available at the home campus in Stephenville—an hour southwest of Fort Worth—and in Fort Worth, Waco, Midlothian, A&M-RELLIS in Bryan, and online.

Tarleton is among only four percent of U.S. universities recognized as Doctoral Universities–High Research Activity by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. Membership in the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities underscores its place among the top schools in North America.

NCAA Division I membership and continued expansion of the Fort Worth campus position Tarleton as a frontrunner for anyone seeking a university degree.
