For automatic admission as a freshman, you must meet the class rank and minimum SAT or ACT score. Students with no class rank will be reviewed individually. Please refer to the chart below.

Meeting the above minimum university admissions requirements does not guarantee admission. In addition, students who are granted admission to the university are not guaranteed admission to a specific academic program.
College Board redesigned the SAT test beginning with the March 2016 test date. Students with SAT scores from test dates before the March 2016 test date need to meet the Minimum Acceptable SAT Scores - Old Format in the chart above. Students with SAT test scores from the March 2016 test date or after need to meet the Minimum Acceptable SAT Scores- Redesigned in the chart above.
Old SAT scores are calculated by adding the highest Critical Reading score with the highest Math score. Redesigned SAT scores are calculated by adding the highest Evidence Based Reading and Writing (EBRW) score to the highest Math section. Old SAT scores and redesigned SAT scores cannot be combined.
UTA uses the composite score for ACT test takers. ACT tests cannot be super-scored.
* Students from schools that do not rank must have a minimum 3.0 unweighted GPA.
Sometimes there are incoming freshman students who fall short of our automatic admission requirements, but still demonstrate a high potential for academic success at UTA. The Summer Bridge Program is a conditional admission program designed to improve the academic success of those freshman students by offering additional support and coursework options in the summer after they graduate high school.
