Admission for Adult Learners

For the purpose of admitting students to Texas A&M-Kingsville, an adult learner is defined as an entering undergraduate student who is 25 years or older and has not attended a university or college since completing their high school diploma or GED. Adult learners are given the option to submit ACT or SAT scores to the Office of Admission. Unless exempt, all admitted students will be required to take a Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA) exam prior to enrolling. For TSIA requirements, refer to the Texas Success Initiative Assessment section of this catalog. This assessment is administered on campus on a regular basis.
