Texas college and university admission requirements

Texas is home to some of the best public universities in the United States. Some schools are very selective and can be difficult to get into. Others are more accomodating when it comes to their acceptance rates. According to public records, one in five freshman at four-year colleges ends up taking at least one remedial class. The good news is that these students are still getting into a four-year school. The only way to know your chances of getting accepted is to research the school you would like to get into. For example, the Texas A&M admissions page says that the average SAT score for incoming freshmen at is 1220 (Verbal + Math).
