Admission Appeals

Students denied admission to Texas State have the right to appeal their decision. For an appeal to be considered, students must submit a request for appeal in writing to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Along with the written appeal, students should submit new academic information.  New academic information includes new semester grades, updated class rank, and/or new test scores.  The written appeal may also include any relevant information regarding extenuating circumstances that were not reflected in the original application.  

Deadline Appeals

Students who failed to complete their admission application file (consisting of the application, application fee and all supporting documents) by the published deadline may request a deadline extension.  Students should provide a written explanation to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions detailing why they were unable to complete their application file by the published deadline. 

Residency Appeals

Students who believe they meet the qualifications for in-state residency but were initially classified as out-of-state by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions have the right to appeal.  Students wishing to appeal their residency classification should reviewthe Residency website and submit the online residency reclassification request form.
