Most counselors have an office on campus,
but some live and office in other cities. Many
of the larger schools have Regional Offices

Antonio, West Texas, and the Valley.

Texas public colleges are required by Texas law to provide automatic admission
of Texas students ranking in the top of their graduating class -- 6% for UT Austin
(Fall 2019), 10% for all other universities. Many schools auto admit a lower rank than
required by law. Some Texas private colleges also have an auto admit policy based on
graduation rank and/or exam scores. A reminder: Good grades are worth the effort!
If graduating in the designated top rank, most all colleges require students to submit
their SAT or ACT exam scores. No minimum score, however, is required for admission
to the university. Exam scores, however, can help you earn exceptional scholarships!

APPLICATION FEE WAIVERS
Most applications require a fee of $15 to $75 for processing. To be exempt from
payment of a college’s application fee, students may submit a fee waiver.
Usually waivers are presented by students with demonstrated economic need, but
sometimes schools provide fee waivers for students who visit their campus. To learn
more, consult with your high school counselor and/or the university admission’s office.
Copies of two waiver forms are provided in Resources.
Fee Waiver Form from NACAC - May use four times
Fee Waiver Form from ACT - Unlimited use
