Before You Apply

Tarleton supports a live-on campus requirement of one year for new incoming students (first time in college and freshmen). Students about to graduate or have already graduated from high school or have earned GED and have not yet attended a post-secondary institution for one long semester (i.e., Fall or Spring), are considered first-time in college (FTIC) students.

Students who have earned college credits before graduating from high school (AP or Dual Credits) or took classes immediately after graduating from high school (during the summer), are also considered FTIC students regardless of earned credit hours. FTIC students are required to reside on-campus their first academic year unless requesting and receiving approval for an Off-Campus Exemption

Students who meet the requirements while in an academic year Housing Contract will be required to fulfill the remainder of the academic year’s contract.

What educational and social programming will you be exposed to as a resident of campus housing?

Campus programming includes discussion forums and conversations, enrollment in a first year experience course, residence hall activities, passive programs and university events. First-year students experience a different residential program curriculum than second-year and above students.
