  • Old SAT (SAT taken prior to March 2016) combines Math + Critical Reading
  • New SAT (SAT taken March 2016 and after) combines Math + Evidence-Based Reading & Writing
  • Self-Reported Academic Record: The Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR) is a tool that allows applicants to self-report their courses, grades, class rank, and other academic information. UTSA requires first-time freshman applicants to submit a Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR) instead of an official sixth-semester high school transcript.
  • Class Rank: High school class ranking is required for graduates of accredited public or private high schools. For applicants whose high school transcript does not present a rank, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions will assign a rank.
  • Test Scores: Test scores are not required, but are considered if submitted. SAT or ACT scores must be submitted directly from the testing agency. UTSA’s code for ACT is 4239. UTSA’s code for the SAT is 6919.
  • Fee Waivers: Eligible first-time freshmen applicants who demonstrate financial need can submit an application fee waiver to cover the application fee.
  • Committee Review: Meeting the stated scores for Committee Review does not guarantee admission. If you are to be considered for admission through committee review, submission of essay A and two letters of recommendation are highly suggested.
  • Dual Credit: If you’ve received dual college credits, please submit official college transcripts (not required for a decision).
  • Military Credit: If you’ve received military credits, please submit your Joint Service Transcript.

International students who hold or are seeking a student visa (F-1) are not eligible for 100% online classes. Find more information about the requirements for international students here.
