Discussion of UTEP's Admissions Standards

UTEP, the University of Texas at El Paso, has nearly open admissions—in 2015 100% of all applicants were accepted. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. You can see that the majority of successful applicants had "A" or "B" averages in high school, and they had combined SAT scores (RW+M) of about 950 or higher and ACT composite scores of 18 or higher. Students with higher grades and test scores are almost guaranteed to get an acceptance letter assuming their applications are complete and they have taken the required high school courses.

Note that there are a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) in the middle of the graph. A few students with grades and test scores that were on target for UTEP failed to get in. In most cases, this was probably because an applicant was disqualified for failing to meet minimum requirements. Note also that some students were accepted with test scores and grades a little bit below the norm. This is because UTEP has several pathways to admission, and some are less dependent on grades or test scores than others. UTEP uses the same application as the rest of Texas's public universities. Your extracurricular activities, work experiences, awards, and community service are all part of that application.
