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 nontraditional 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 nontraditional 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

Applicants from non-ranking public or private schools must meet the freshman requirements outlined above and will be considered for admission based on an individual review by the Office of Undergraduate Admission. This review will take into account ACT or SAT scores, curriculum and grades, admission essay, employment and service to community. For admission purposes, a class rank will be assigned by Texas State in accordance with SB 1543 referenced above.
