Freshman Admission

Eligibility for admission as a freshman is determined primarily on the basis of three predictors of academic success: high school preparation, rank in high school class, and SAT (ACT) score. Additional consideration for admission will be based on an evaluation of the additional criteria as described below.

Students enrolling with ACT/SAT scores and high school rankings below UT Tyler’s published admission criteria, and/or students enrolling as ‘liable’ or ‘not satisfied’ according to published state standards for TSI compliance, will be required to participate in the PASSages (Patriot Academic Success Services) Program during their first semester of enrollment.
