Statistical Summaries

General Information | 2005-2006

1. The name of the SAT I has recently been changed to "SAT Reasoning Test"; the name "New SAT" has been used for the version of the test administered after January 2005. The verbal portion of the New SAT has been renamed "critical reading." Both old and new total, math, and verbal/critical reading scores that are less than five years old may be used to meet TSI requirements as described here. The essay section of the New SAT may not yet be used to meet TSI requirements.

2. In addition to earning adequate grades in courses, undergraduates must have a cumulative University grade point average of at least 2.00 to maintain satisfactory progress toward a degree; graduate students must maintain a graduate grade point average of at least 3.00. Information about these requirements is given in the section "Scholastic Probation and Dismissal."Computation of the grade point average is explained later in chapter 4.

3. Issues involving withholding or deferring grades for graduate students are handled by the deans of the colleges and schools.

4. Students in the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Natural Sciences may take up to sixteen semester hours of classroom or correspondence work in elective courses on the pass/fail basis. Plan II students may take up to nineteen semester hours of elective courses on the pass/fail basis. Only two courses a semester may be taken pass/fail, and courses may be taken pass/fail only after the student has thirty semester hours of credit.

5. Credit by examination cannot be reported to the registrar for former students who are prohibited from enrolling in Texas public colleges and universities due to noncompliance with Texas Success Initiative regulations.

6. Implementation of section 51.9111 is subject to guidelines to be developed by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. In particular, the Coordinating Board will establish a maximum period that a student may be absent under this section.

7. Each grade point average is the minimum required for graduation with honors, high honors, or highest honors. Because only a certain percentage of the class may receive honors, the average required for each category may be higher.

8. To graduate with University honors, a student in the McCombs School must have completed at least sixty semester hours of coursework in residence at the University.

9. To graduate with University honors, a student in the College of Communication must have completed at the University at least sixty semester hours of coursework counted toward the degree.

10. To graduate with University honors, a student in the College of Engineering must have completed in residence at the University at least sixty semester hours of coursework counted toward the degree. A student may receive only one bachelor's degree with University honors from the College of Engineering.

11. To graduate with University honors, a student in the College of Fine Arts must rank in the indicated percent of students graduating that semester from his or her academic unit (art and art history, music, or theatre and dance) and must have no outstanding delay of grade (symbol X). He or she must have completed at least sixty semester hours of coursework in residence at the University. A student may receive only one bachelor's degree with University honors from the College of Fine Arts.
