Evidence of acceptable academic standing at an accredited college or university and appropriate academic credentials are required. Although a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher is generally required for admission, every application will be reviewed on an individual basis. In most cases, greater emphasis is placed on academic work completed in recent semesters than on work completed in the more distant past.

If, when applying, you have fewer than 24 hours of transferable college credit, you must also submit a high school transcript and the results of your SAT or ACT as admission credentials. Courses will transfer to TCU, but some may not fit the degree plan you choose. This determination is made by your academic department or the dean of the school or college in which you major. Note that admission to TCU does not assure approval for your major field of study. Many programs, including Education Certification, Army ROTC, Air Force ROTC, the Neeley School of Business, Nursing and some other academic majors have additional requirements. Information about requirements of specific majors may be found in the Undergraduate Studies Bulletin (catalog) or at the office of your specific major field of study.

In addition to your signed application and $40 fee, also request separate official transcripts be sent to TCU directly from each college attended. Any missing transcripts will preclude admission or continued enrollment. Notification of admittance status will be sent three to five weeks after your file is complete.
