Founded as John Tarleton College in 1899, today's university offers cutting-edge academic facilities and world-class faculty with extensive real-world experience.
With its main campus in Stephenville, Tarleton offers centers in Fort Worth, Waco, Midlothian, RELLIS-Bryan and a global campus for state-of-the-art online programs. Extending the reach of educational value, Tarleton has boosted its selection of online graduate and undergraduate programs through classes in these centers.
Students may select areas of study from six colleges: Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Business Administration, Education, Graduate Studies, Health Sciences and Human Services, Liberal and Fine Arts, and Science and Technology.

Tarleton's research cent...ers are daily searching for solutions to global problems.

Tarleton's blueprints for a brighter-than-ever future include a new applied sciences building with engineering laboratory space on campus in Stephenville, a new academic building on the university's planned 80-acre Fort Worth campus near Chisolm Trail Parkway, and $24 million in upgrades and improvements to the institution's venerable Memorial Stadium.
