Tarleton State University Fort Worth
Tarleton State University – Fort Worth, an off-campus instructional site of Tarleton State University, has operated programs serving the needs of Tarrant, Johnson and Parker Counties for over 40 years. Initial programs started in 1978 in the area of Medical Laboratory Sciences, providing critically needed health care professionals for the rapidly growing Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Those programs were followed by cooperative programs with the Fort Worth ISD to offer alternative teacher certification programs to meet the growing demands for teachers in 2000. Since that time, Tarleton has expanded program offerings at this location to include a variety of programs from the College of Education and Human Development, College of Business, College of Health Sciences and Human Services, College of Liberal and Fine Arts, and College of Science and Technology. Programs include doctoral and master’s level programs/course work, and junior/senior level courses for baccalaureate degree completion. Baccalaureate degree completion programs are designed to build upon associate programs offered by Tarrant County Community College District, Weatherford College, Hill College, among others.

Thanks to the donation of 80 acres by the Walton Group of Companies, a beautiful new three –story, 76,000 square foot multi-purpose academic facility opened in fall 2019 on the Chisholm Trail Parkway in Southwest Fort Worth. This facility, along with the existing R.C. Shaeffer Building in the Fort Worth Medical District, and newly completed classrooms on the Tarrant County College – Trinity River West Fork Campus, provide Tarleton with outstanding facilities to meet student needs.
