Freshman Admissions Appeals

Freshman applicants to Tarleton State University who do not meet regular admission requirements may request further consideration by completing a Freshman Admissions Appeal. An appeal to reconsider our original admission decision may or may not change the decision.

Students are encouraged to appeal only if:

  1. Their academic credentials (test scores, grades, etc.) have changed significantly; or
  2. They wish to provide additional information that further explains personal circumstances that may have affected their ability to meet admissions requirements.

All-Freshman Admission Appeal decisions are final.

  • Request ACT scores here
  • Request SAT scores here
  • Request official dual credit college transcript to be sent directly from the college or university.
