If you’re enrolled in an SBEC-approved teacher certification program seeking your initial certification, you’re eligible for free membership, which includes full access to all TCTA programs, including TCTA’s legal services and professional liability insurance coverage during your unpaid semester(s) of student teaching.
If you are paid by a school district for student teaching or are working for a school district in another capacity (such as an aide, substitute or teacher), you do not qualify for free student membership. Certified teachers seeking additional certifications or advanced degrees do not qualify for student memberships.
Online registration for the 2023-24 school year has closed. If you missed the deadline to sign up for a student membership but need coverage for the Spring 2024 semester, please call the Membership Department at 888-879-8282 to verify eligibility and enroll over the phone.
