UTA considers your class rank and SAT or ACT scores to determine admission. Please refer to the chart below for minimum admission requirements. You may also review admission policies and legislative requirements in the University Catalog.

UTA calculates the old SAT scores by combining the highest Critical Reading section score with the highest Math score. We calculate the new SAT score by combining the highest Evidence Based Reading and Writing (EBRW) sections score with the highest Math section score. UTA cannot combine test sections from the old SAT with the new SAT. UTA uses the composite score for ACT test-takers. ACT tests cannot be super-scored.
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. UTA will assign a class rank in accordance with SB 1543 for admission purposes to all students from non-ranking high schools.
UTA also welcomes applicants from nontraditional secondary education backgrounds, including homeschool students and students who earned a GED. In accordance with SB 1543, if you present evidence of the completion of a nontraditional secondary education without an official class rank, UTA assign a class rank. This assigned class rank will be comparable to the average class rank of other applicants with equivalent SAT or ACT scores. UTA requires an official homeschool or GED transcript to show completion of a nontraditional secondary education.
UTA offers a Summer Bridge program that allows students who fall short of our admission requirements to receive a conditional admission pathway to UTA. These students must demonstrate a high potential for academic success.
