We have flexible deadlines which means that the application received and/or completed after the program's specified deadline day may be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis, with no guarantees for admission consideration. The application will still be available on ApplyTexas after this day for U.S. applicants only. Please note: Applications must be complete by the priority deadline to be considered for funding.
Start from the very bottom of the transcript and count up 60 hours. Texas State University does not use grades at community colleges and they do not count courses taken twice. Incompletes and withdraws, are not used in calculating the last 60 hours.
For students who have NOT YET GRADUATED they can retake courses in which they earned Cs, Ds, or Fs. It is especially important to retake and earn As in courses in which students have earned Ds and Fs. This might mean staying an extra semester, but if the goal is to raise the GPA, then this is a viable option for some students.
For students who have GRADUATED:
Students can get a second bachelor’s degree: Do well in this second degree. Raise the GPA. Work hard in all classes to earn As.
In some programs, students can take *GRADUATE* courses as a non-degree seeking student. Make As in these graduate courses. Let’s say a student took 6 or 9 hours and earned As. Those As become part of the “last 60 hours GPA calculation.” However, do not take undergraduate courses UNLESS you plan to get a second degree.
