LICENSURE REQUIREMENTS

ANNUAL REPORT: GRADUATION, LICENSURE, & PLACEMENT RATES

Each agency requires schools to provide valuable information regarding outcome rates in the areas of graduation, placement, and licensure. TPCA obtains this information by applying quantitative standards to an identified cohort of students each year, then reviewing the performance of that cohort over time to determine how many completed their program within a reporting period. Note: Outcome rates are calculated at the institutional and program level.


The following statistics represent institutional outcomes for graduation rates, job placement rates, and licensure exam pass rates as of 11/30/2020, as reported in the NACCAS 2019 Annual Report for the 2019 student.

CRIMINAL HISTORY EVALUATION & DISCLAIMER

TPCA is neither involved in the review nor decision process of any criminal history evaluations conducted by TDLR. The academy is not responsible for any adverse outcomes. Please note having a criminal history does not automatically exclude an individual from obtaining a license.

Every individual who applies for a license with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (“the Department”) is subject to a criminal background check to determine his or her suitability for the license. If an applicant knowingly has a criminal background, the applicant is highly encouraged to contact the Department before applying to determine if it will hinder their ability to become licensed in the state. Section 51.4012 and Chapter 53, Subchapter D, of the Occupations Code, allows a person to request a criminal history evaluation letter from the Department, prior to actually applying for a license.

TPCA is not responsible for students denied licensure. For more information visit:
