Admission Checklist for Freshman
- Complete an application for admission. Apply using the Texas Common Application at www.applytexas.org. A one-time, non-refundable application fee of $25 is required. Freshman are eligible to receive a fee waiver when they submit the SAT or ACT fee waiver or send proof that they are eligible for, or receive, free or reduced lunches at school. Transfer students are eligible to receive a fee waiver when they submit a copy of their financial aid award letter showing that they received a Pell grant or other need based scholarship within the past year. Fax, email, or mail your fee waiver.
- Send your high school transcript. Ask your high school to send your official high school transcript through the latest semester you have completed. For high school seniors, this may be your high school transcript through the end of your junior year or the first semester of your senior year. If you have already graduated from high school, send your final high school transcript with your graduation date.
Send your ACT or SAT test results. Some high schools include SAT and ACT test scores on their transcripts. Check with your counselor. To request SAT scores, go to www.collegeboard.com. To request ACT scores, go to www.act.org.FIRST TIME IN COLLEGE ADMISSION REQUIREMENTSAdmissions Requirements for Students on Recommended/Distinguished Graduation Plan/Endorsement PlanRank in ClassMinimum ACTMinimum SAT (reading and Math)Top Half(Top 50%)
