Officials at Texas A&M University-Kingsville have announced they will make optional requirement of First-time in College (FTIC) applicants to provide SAT or ACT scores to be considered for admission for the spring, summer and fall sessions in 2021. 


“Due to COVID-19, there has been uncertainty about whether the ACT and SAT tests will be consistently accessible to all prospective students. As such, Texas A&M University-Kingsville has decided to make the SAT and ACT optional for admission in the spring, summer and fall of 2021,” said Dr. Maureen Croft, vice president for enrollment management.  


“We believe that this will ensure fairness in the admissions process during these unprecedented times,” she added. “Applications will be reviewed holistically with or without SAT or ACT scores. We encourage students to provide additional information on their application such as letters of reference, academic achievements, extracurricular activities, community service, awards and other factors that support an applicant’s ability to succeed at Texas A&M-Kingsville. 


Students who have been denied admission should know that the university’s Admission Appeal Process remains in effect without change. Anyone with questions are encouraged to contact the university at or 361-593-5372 (JESC).
