How do I start the application process? When is the deadline for admission?

The first step is to apply to the School Psychology program. On your application, you should indicate in your statement of intent that you're interested in becoming a Project SUPERB scholar. We will schedule an interview and language proficiency assessment.

What are the qualifications/requirements for becoming a Project SUPERB scholar?

Those individuals who are admitted to the program and who have expressed an interest in becoming Project SUPERB scholars will be scheduled to interview with our program faculty to assess:

  • Fluency in Spanish by achieving an average rating of at least level 3 on the Bilingual Special Education Oral Proficiency Observation Matrix
  • A match between applicant aspirations and Project SUPERB's goals
  • A commitment to serving Spanish speaking children in schools

Applicants must also submit a written statement addressing why they wish to serve high need urban or rural bilingual schools and communities and children with disabilities.

How much is tuition? What about registration fees?

Project SUPBER scholars receive a stipend for each year that they are in the program (approximately $11,000 in Year 1, $8,000 in Year 2, and $6,000 in Year 3). Note that Year 3 is the internship year in which students are typically paid by the school district. Click here for more information about financial aid and the cost of attending Texas State.

Do you offer a bilingual certificate for individuals who already have a school psychology degree?

Currently we do not, and the funding we received for Project SUPERB is restricted to students who are pursuing their school psychology degrees. We are exploring options for post-degree bilingual certification and will post any information that becomes available.
