Transfer Student Appeal Form

The appeal option is only available to transfer student applicants. Freshman applicants can review their admission options and take action on the best pathway for them.

Applicants to the university who do not meet regular admission requirements may request further consideration by submitting information which 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 significantly. In order to be considered for appeal, applicants are required to complete the Undergraduate Appeal Form and submit optional letters of support to the WTAMU Office of Admissions. Applicants must show evidence of an attempt to improve their test score by providing scores from at least two test administrations.

The appeal statement should include information explaining why the student should be considered for admission and the supplemental factor(s) that form the basis for his/her request. In addition, applicants may choose to submit letters of support from school counselors, teachers, and/or personal references who can confirm that there is reasonable evidence that the student can succeed academically at West Texas A&M University.

Applicants must have a completed application on file in the Office of Admissions for the current term, which includes the application fee, all official transcripts and test scores (if required). Requests for undergraduate appeal from applicants that do not have a complete application on file in the Office of Admissions, who provide scores from only one test administration, or who fail to include a personal statement and letters of support may not be processed.


Undergraduate Appeals sessions occur periodically throughout the year. You will receive notification by mail after your documents have been reviewed. Decisions are made the week of the appeal deadline. 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:

  • January Intersession - December 15th
  • Spring - December 15th
  • May Intersession - May 11th
  • Summer I - May 23rd
  • Summer II - July 3rd
  • Fall - August 15th

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.

Mail optional letters of support to:

Undergraduate Appeal Committee
Office of Admissions
West Texas A&M University
2501 4th Ave
Canyon, Texas 79015


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

Students must submit a complete appeal packet for review. This includes: the  online Admission Appeal Form, Letter(s) of Recommendation (optional) and all necessary items for the students file (application, application fee, all official transcripts and test scores). Students that do not submit a completed packet by the deadlines may not be reviewed.
