Admission and Deadline Appeals

Students denied admission to Texas State have the right to appeal the decision.  Those who file an appeal will undergo an extensive review by the Admission Appeals Committee and will be notified in writing of the final decision.

For an appeal to have merit, it must bring to light new academic information (new semester grades, class rank and/ or test scores sent directly from the high school or the testing service) and/or information relevant to any extenuating circumstances that were not reflected in the original application.  Students who have retested or are scheduled to retest should submit their official scores to the Office of Undergraduate Admission as soon as they are available.  Sending new scores does not require a student to go through the appeals process, but rather allows the student to be reconsidered for admission based on the new test scores.  All appeals are reviewed on an individual basis. 

Students who failed to complete their admission file (consisting of the application and application fee, and all supporting documents) by the published deadline may appeal. Appellants should send a letter of appeal to:

Texas State University Office of Undergraduate Admission
429 N Guadalupe St.
San Marcos, TX 78666

or via email to The Admission Appeals Committee will notify you of their decision by email after they have addressed your appeal.
