As a member of The Texas A&M University System, Tarleton is rich in history and tradition while being committed to student success and diversity. Tarleton strives to develop moral and ethical thinkers, scholars, and leaders who demonstrate civility and integrity, while contributing meaningfully and responsibly to a global society.
Tarleton State University was established in Stephenville, Texas in 1899. Its Fort Worth campus is a vibrant learning community that has been educating students in for more than 30 years and is the only public university in Fort Worth. We provide a variety of courses within multiple undergraduate and graduate fields of study for our students. With a diverse student population comprised of many working adults we make sure our campus is accessible for all with face-to-face, blended, and online courses. Additionally, we offer evening, day, and weekend course options to accommodate both part-time and full-time schedules. A new campus is planned along the Chisholm Trail Tollway with an anticipated opening in Fall 2019. Thanks to an 80 acre donation by the Walton Group of Companies and $39.6 million in bond revenues provided by the Texas Legislature, the initial building on the new campus will begin construction in 2017. Contributions to the Fort Worth Student Building Fund will provide funds to enhance the overall student experience in the new Tarleton Fort Worth Center off the Chisholm Trail Parkway. Gifts from students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends will be used for aesthetic upgrades and future facility improvements.
