Undergraduate Categories of Admission

Full Admission

Students who meet all undergraduate admission requirements at the time of application (minimum of 30 academic college-level transferable semester hours, minimum 2.0 cumulative transfer GPA, and eligible to return to all previously attended institutions) are granted full admission.

Non-Degree Seeking Admission

Non-degree seeking admission is available to applicants seeking to enroll at A&M-Central Texas who do not wish to pursue an undergraduate degree (at any institution). Students may desire to enroll as non-degree seeking to meet leveling requirements for a graduate degree or for personal or professional development. Students categorized as a non-degree seeking are not restricted to one semester and are not required to reapply each semester. Applicants seeking non-degree seeking admission must provide the same application requirements as those seeking full admission to the university. Non-degree seeking students must be eligible to return to each previously attended institution and, if admitted, are not eligible for financial assistance. Students admitted as non-degree seeking who later wish to pursue a degree at A&M-Central Texas may do so; however, must complete the regular admission process and meet all general admission requirements.

Transient Admission

Transient admission is available to students pursuing a baccalaureate degree at another college or university who seek to enroll at A&M-Central Texas for only one semester. Transient admission is restricted to one semester (including summer), and students must reapply each semester. Applicants seeking transient admission must provide the same application requirements as those seeking full admission to the university. Transient students must be eligible to return to each previously attended institution and, if admitted, are not eligible for financial assistance. Students admitted as transient who later wish to pursue a degree at A&M-Central Texas may do so; however, must complete the regular admission process and meet all general admission requirements.

Post-Baccalaureate Admission

Students who have a prior bachelor’s degree from an accredited U.S. institution and are eligible to return to all previously attended institutions may seek post-baccalaureate admission. Post-baccalaureate students may work on a subsequent bachelor's degree or teaching certification. To be considered for post-baccalaureate admission, students must complete an ApplyTexas application and submit an official transcript from all previously attended institutions. Applicants must meet general admission requirements. Note: Undergraduate academic standards apply to post-baccalaureate students.
