Discussion of Texas State's Admissions Standards:

Roughly a third of all applicants to Texas State University will not get in. Successful applicants to this public university will need solid grades and standardized test scores. In the scattergram above, the blue and green dots represent students who received acceptance letters. Most had SAT scores (RW+M) of 950 or higher, an ACT composite of 18 or higher, and a high school average of a "B" or better. Grades and test scores above these lower ranges will improve your chances, and you can see that a significant number of admitted students had grades in the "A" range.

Note that there are a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) mixed in with the green and blue in the middle of the graph. Some students with grades and test scores that were on target for Texas State University did not get get in. Note also that a few students were accepted with test scores and grades a bit below the norm. This is because Texas State has an admissions process that assures admission for students based on a combination of test scores and class rank. The higher a student's class rank, the lower the test scores can be. Students who don't automatically qualify for assured admission through their test scores can still qualify through a review process that considers other factors including an application essay. So while the general admission process is much more mathematical than holistic, the university will take holistic measures into account for some applicants.

For assured admissions, it's important for applicants to complete a college preparatory curriculum that includes four years of English, math, science, and social science; two years of a foreign language; and one year of fine arts and physical education.
