Eligibility Requirements for International Freshman Students


Test Type Engineering Majors All Other Majors
SAT I Test 1270 980
ACT 28 23

The SAT score is calculated by combining the highest evidence based Reading, Writing, and Math score. The ACT is the composite score, which included the English, Reading, Math, and Science sections. UTA does not require an essay. 

Test Score Optional

Please be advised that UTA is test score optional for admission through summer 2024. If you apply for admission without these test scores your application will be evaluated based on high school records such as GPA, class rank, courses taken and other relevant criteria. However, test scores can help in determining admissions decisions and scholarship opportunities.

Non-Ranking High Schools

UTA welcomes applicants from non-ranking public or private high schools. You must meet the requirements outlined above and will be considered for admission based on individual review, which may consider other factors like grade point average in place of class rank.
