Tarleton State University

1333 W. Washington, Stephenville, TX 76401

Tarleton State University offers more than one hundred undergraduate and graduate degree options in providing an innovative and transformative education.

Founded as John Tarleton College in 1899 and a member of The Texas A&M University System since 1917, the school enjoys its own blend of personal attention, learning opportunities, tradition, and community. Cutting-edge academic facilities and faculty with extensive professional and industry experience prepare students for today’s marketplace and careers yet imagined.

Classes are available at the home campus in Stephenville—an hour southwest of Fort Worth—and in Fort Worth, Waco, Midlothian, the RELLIS Academic Alliance in Bryan, and online. The university serves some 14,000 students from all parts of Texas, 43 states, and almost three dozen countries.

The move to NCAA Division I as a member of the Western Athletic Conference and the announcement of a second building on the Fort Worth campus further position Tarleton as a frontrunner for anyone seeking a university education.
