Application Processes for 2020-2021

Texas State University 2021 Freshman

 

Texas State University will not require SAT or ACT test scores for students ranked in the top 75% of their high school classes for admission to the university, application to the Honors College, or for consideration for Assured and Competitive Scholarships. This expands the modifications made for admission application review for Summer/Fall 2020 to all 2021 admission terms (Spring, Summer, and Fall). These modifications include:

 

SAT or ACT Test Scores – Students ranked in the top 75% of their high school classes will not be required to submit an SAT or ACT test score. Students applying without an SAT or ACT will receive a holistic review of their application, which includes consideration of their high school curriculum, level of courses taken, grades earned, admission essay(s) and extracurricular involvement/leadership/community service/work experience throughout their high school career.  While not a requirement for admission, if a student wishes to send an SAT or ACT score to Texas State, we will accept the scores from the testing service (College Board or ACT), from the high school transcript or from a student’s score report.

 

Honors College Application – The Honors College will consider admitted students for all 2021 terms for admission to the Honors College without an SAT or ACT score.

 

Assured and Competitive Scholarships – Texas State will consider admitted freshmen for all 2021 terms for Assured and Competitive Scholarships without an SAT or ACT score.  Students applying without an SAT or ACT will receive a holistic review of their application, which will include consideration of their high school curriculum, level of courses taken, high school rank/percentile, grades earned, and may include admission essay(s) and extracurricular involvement/leadership/community service/work experience throughout their high school career. To be considered for Competitive Scholarships, students will also need to complete and submit a Texas State scholarship application via the Bobcat Online Scholarship System (BOSS) at www.BOSS.txstate.edu by December 15th.

 

Fee Waivers – In addition to FAFSA or TASFA documentation, Texas State University will accept Fee Waiver documentation from ACT, SAT, NACAC or documentation of eligibility for Free and Reduced Lunch. The documentation can be sent by scanned email attachment, mail or fax. A full listing of Texas State University Fee Waiver options can be found at www.admissions.txstate.edu/future-students/fee-waiver.html.

 

High School Transcripts – Texas State University will accept high school transcripts as a PDF from the high school counselor, a PDF from the student, or from any of the following electronic transcript services: TREX, Naviance, Parchment, Scribbles, Scoir. Official transcripts are not required for application review or admission.

 

Additional Information – Texas State University encourages students to share any changes to their educational process due to COVID-19 as part of their application. This information will be used as part of the holistic review process.

As we kick off the fall semester, we wanted to reach out regarding ACU’s policy on college entrance exams. We realize many test dates have been cancelled this year and students at your school may have had difficulty taking a college entrance exam. For the upcoming school year, students can choose to apply to ACU test-optional. We also wanted to inform you that in addition to the ACT and SAT, ACU now accepts the CLT (Classical Learning Test) for admission and scholarships. The CLT will be proctoring two exams remotely this fall and the next exam is on September 26
