Applicants from Non-Ranking Schools

Nontraditional Secondary Education: GED and Homeschool Applicants

In accordance with Senate Bill 1543 (SB1543), applicants for admission who present evidence of completion of a non-traditional secondary education without an official class rank will have a class rank assigned by Texas State. The class rank will be comparable to the average class rank of other applicants who have equivalent ACT or SAT scores. A non-traditional secondary education includes Homeschool and GED graduates. Texas State requires an official Homeschool or GED transcript to demonstrate evidence of completion.

Non-Ranking Public and Private High Schools

Students from a non-ranking school who do not fall into the non-traditional school definition, will be assigned a rank. This rank, determined by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, will be based on the student's academic rigor, grades in academic courses, GPA (if available), and the profile of the high school.
