Texans and TexAnns

  • Tarleton’s vision is to become the premier student-focused university in Texas and beyond.
  • Ranks in the top 25 percent of Texas universities with a six-year graduation rate and bottom 25 percent for tuition and fees, according to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
  • Member of the Texas A&M University System since 1917.

JUST THE RIGHT SIZE for an innovative and transformative educational experience: That’s Tarleton State University, a member of the Texas A&M University System since 1917, with its own blend of personal attention, learning opportunities, tradition, and community.

Founded as John Tarleton College in 1899, the university has blossomed into the ideal model of size and scope. Featuring cutting-edge academic facilities and faculty with extensive professional and industry experience, Tarleton provides students with teacher interaction and individual attention generally associated with smaller colleges.

The home campus is located in Stephenville—an hour southwest of Fort Worth—and classes are available at centers in Fort Worth, Waco, Midlothian, and the RELLIS Academic Alliance in Bryan, as well as online. The university serves more than 13,000 students from all parts of Texas, 45 states, and almost two dozen countries with more than 60 bachelor’s degree programs and 30 graduate programs, including a doctorate in educational leadership.

A new 98,000-square-foot engineering building is a testament of Tarleton’s commitment to the future. The $54 million campus addition puts Tarleton’s engineering, engineering technology and computer science programs at the forefront of educational delivery for these disciplines.

Venerable Memorial Stadium, home of the Lone Star Conference Texans, is getting an almost $27 million facelift and expansion to enhance football fans’ game-day experience. Additionally, the first building at Tarleton’s planned 80-acre campus along the Chisholm Trail Parkway in southwest Fort Worth is set to open in fall 2019.
