Admission Requirements Based on Student Type
- First-time Freshman: If you are about to graduate or have already graduated from high school or you earned your GED and you have not yet attended a post-secondary institution for one long semester (i.e., fall or spring), we consider you a first-time freshman. If you earned college credits before graduating from high school (dual credit) or took courses immediately after graduating from high school (during the summer), we also consider you a first-time freshman.
- International Freshman: If you attended a high school in the United States with a visa or have graduated from a high school in another country, we consider you an international freshman.
- Transfer Students: If you completed transferable credit at the college level from a regionally accredited institution during a fall or spring semester after graduating high school or receiving a GED, we consider you a transfer student.
- Active Military and Veterans: If you are currently serving or have served in the military, we thank you for your service and consider you a transfer student.
- International Transfers: If you are transferring to Tarleton with credit from a higher educational institution in either the United States with a visa or from another country, we consider you an international transfer student.
- Post-Baccalaureate: If you have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution in the United States and are in good standing at all schools previously attended but you are not seeking a master’s degree or professional certification, we consider you a post-baccalaureate student.
