2015-2016 Admission Requirements for Adult and Transfer Students

Note: These admission requirements are for the Summer 2015, Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 terms.

Adult Students: first time freshmen who have been out of high school one semester and never taken college courses at another university since high school graduation, students who are military or veteran, students with a GED.  Students who took college courses during high school or the summer immediately following graduation are considered traditional first-time freshmen.

For unconditional admission, UT requires adult students to:

  • Complete minimum college preparatory curriculum course work:
           4 years/units of English
           4 years/units of math (including algebra I and II and geometry or equivalent) for 2014 graduates and beyond, 
           and only 3 years of math needed for graduates prior to 2014
           3 years/units of natural science
           3 years/units of social science
  • Submit a high school cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher; in this case, no ACT/SAT scores will be needed.
  • Students who are 25 years of age or older, current member of the U.S. military or veterans are admitted regardless of GPA; no ACT/SAT scores will be needed. 
  • Students who do not fall into either of these categories and have a high school cumulative GPA under 2.0 must submit a minimum 15 ACT (740 SAT combined reading and math score), and one writing section score for admission.  If a student does not meet this requirement, they may submit an appeal form that delineates their college readiness.  The appeal will be reviewed by a committee.  Appeal forms should be submitted as soon as possible, with a final deadline of August 1.
  • Based upon a student's major and the ACT or SAT score, students may be required to take placement tests, which will assist in placing student in courses

High School Transcripts: All students (excluding GED holders) must send an official high school transcript, complete with a stamped graduation date, to the Office of Undergraduate Admission.

GED Holder Requirements:  The above ACT/SAT requirements do not apply to GED holders.  However, many of our academic colleges require ACT/SAT scores for direct admission into a program.  Students utilizing the GED must submit an official copy of their GED (General Education Development) diploma and scores.  You can obtain a copy of your GED from the Department of Education in the state where you took the GED test.

Transfer Students: Students with college credits taken fall semester of the year they graduated from high school or later. Students who took college courses during high school or the summer immediately following graduation are considered traditional first-time freshmen.

Transfer students with a minimum higher education GPA of 2.0, for all work taken, who do not meet college/program admission requirements below will be admitted to the College of Adult and Lifelong Learning or the Department of Exploratory Studies, YouCollege.

Conditional Admits:

Your first semester GPA at UT must be at least a 2.0 to remain at UT. A completed application and all official transcripts must be received 10 days prior to the start of the term.

Transfer Re-Admit students are students that attended UT, then attended another institution, and are coming back to UT. If your higher education GPA is under a 2.0, your file will be reviewed before you are re-admitted to UT.

Placement Tests: Based on a student’s major and previous college coursework, you may be required to take placement tests.
