Automatic Transfer Admission
Some students who graduate from Texas high schools qualify for automatic transfer admission.
To be eligible, you must:
- Have graduated from high school in 2008 or later
- Qualify based on Texas law for automatic freshman admission to a Texas university
- Enroll at a Texas community or junior college after you graduate from high school
- Complete the core curriculum at a Texas public junior college or other Texas public or private lower-division institution of higher education
- Earn a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 on a four-point scale (or the equivalent)
- Apply for transfer admission to a term no later than four years after the academic year (e.g. 2014-15) in which you graduated from high school
Even applications from those who are automatically admissible are subject to holistic review to determine the major to which the applicant will be admitted.
