Unique Circumstances

  • For students not on a Texas High School Diploma Program

    In addition to meeting the above standardized test score requirements, the State of Texas requires applicants to fulfill ONE of the following criteria:

    • Submit, for private school students, the Texas Private High School Certification.
    • Satisfied ACT College Readiness Benchmark scores (English: 18, Math: 22, Reading: 22, and Science: 23) OR earned a SAT (old test) composite score of at least 1500 (out of a possible 2400) OR earned a SAT (new test) score of 480 Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and 530 Math.
  • For Homeschooled students
    • Home-schooled applicants for admission who present evidence of completion of a nontraditional secondary education without an official class rank will have a class rank assigned by the Office of Admissions. This process is in accordance with Texas Senate Bill 1543. The class rank will be comparable to the average class rank of other applicants who have equivalent ACT or SAT scores.
    • Students who meet above requirements will be admitted; all other applications will go through a file review.
  • To receive dual-credit, Advanced Placement (AP) credits or credits by exam

    Official college transcripts and/or advanced placement scores must be submitted in order to receive earned credit. Students are encouraged to submit official college transcripts in January showing all dual credit coursework completed up to that point. A final college transcript should be submitted following completion of all dual credit coursework.  Students should request an official transcript directly from the college/university providing the college credit. Please do not email college transcripts. Visit our transcript resource page for links for how to order transcripts from other Texas colleges and universities.

    Students who submit ACT or SAT scores for admission purposes may be eligible for credit at Angelo State University.

  • Admission Review

    We expect students to be academically prepared for success at the collegiate level.  We specifically consider academic performance, standardized test scores and educational preparation.  Consideration factors may include, but are not limited to, first-generation status, bilingual proficiency, extracurricular activities, community activities, region of residence, socioeconomic background, financial status of the school district, the school district’s performance level on the TEA’s accountability criteria, responsibilities such as employment or helping to rear children, resident of a rural or urban area or a resident of a central city or suburban area, attendance in a school under a court ordered desegregation plan, commitment to a particular field of study, personal interview, admission to a comparable accredited out-of-state institution, or any other consideration the university considers necessary to accomplish the university’s stated mission.
