Two things are required to start a school that only offers religious studies programs (teaching only religious studies courses or offering only religious degrees) in Texas:

1. A letter from the Texas Workforce Commission granting an exemption. TWC can be reached by telephone at (512) 936-3100 or via the web here.

2. If degrees will be offered, a letter from the Coordinating Board explaining that approval is not required since religious studies are outside the purview of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
