Freshmen Appeal Process

Freshmen applicants to the university who do not meet regular admission requirements may request further consideration by submitting information that demonstrates their potential for academic success at the University. Although consideration may be based on one or more factors, students are encouraged to appeal if the academic credentials (test scores and/or grades) have changed. In order to be considered for appeal, applicants are required to complete the Freshmen Appeal Form, Admissions Review Questions, and a Counselor Recommendation Form.


Freshmen Appeals sessions occur periodically throughout the year. You will receive notification by phone after your documents have been reviewed. To be assured that your documents can be reviewed for the term applied; this form and all required documents must be RECEIVED by the Office of Admissions no later than the appropriate date indicated below:

  • Spring - December 1 st
  • Fall - August 1 st

The University may, at its discretion, consider Admission Appeal requests after the deadlines listed above. However, prospective students cannot be assured that materials received after the appropriate deadline will be reviewed. Students admitted after regular registration for the semester in which they are applying must register during late registration. Course selection may be limited and many classes may be unavailable during the late registration cycle.

If you have questions concerning the Freshmen Appeal option, please contact the Office of Admissions at (806) 651-2020 and ask to speak with an Admissions Counselor.
