In order to maintain a successful learning culture, admission to our programs have become increasingly selective. Students are evaluated based on grades, personal narratives and test scores, as well as, in some instances, the submission of a portfolio. The materials are reviewed by admissions committees found in each program.
Students entering the program are among the highest qualified students on campus — GPAs, SAT/ACT scores for undergraduates, and GRE scores for graduate applicants — are, on average, some of the best when compared to other UT programs.
