    You can register online to take the Internet-based (iBT) THEA at the THEA website. The iBT THEA is offered at a few college test sites within Texas. UT Arlington Testing Services offers the THEA Quick Test to students on a monthly basis. You can read more about the Quick THEA on the Testing Services website.
  3. Grade point average (GPA) of 3.0
    Effective Spring 2014, your GPA must meet or exceed 3.0. This is a UTA cumulative GPA which may include transfer coursework in calculations if no UTA grades have been earned yet.
