Readmission and Academic Fresh Start


Former students who have had a break in enrollment of more than two years at this university must update their records by submitting a readmission application to Texas A&M University-Kingsville, available online at the website. Those who have taken college work at another institution must request that official transcripts be sent to the Office of Admission. Readmission will be granted if a student is in good standing (a 2.0 overall grade point average or 2.50 for the College of Engineering) and does not have more than three (3) Enforced Withdrawals at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.

Students who do not meet published readmission criteria do not qualify for automatic readmission to Texas A&M University-Kingsville. Readmission students in this category who wish to receive further review must contact the dean of their academic college for consideration. If their academic dean recommends admission, students will be admitted with an academic status of Scholastic Probation and must maintain a 2.0 grade point average during their first semester of reenrollment at Texas A&M University-Kingsville. Failure to maintain a 2.0 grade point average during the first term of reenrollment will result in dismissal from the institution.

Academic Fresh Start

Pursuant to Senate Bill No. 1321 enacted by the 73rd Texas Legislature, Texas residents seeking admission to Texas A&M University-Kingsville who have previous college course work more than 10 years old at the time of application may elect to have the University disregard that course work when considering the applicant for admission. An applicant who makes this election and is admitted may not receive any course credit for courses undertaken 10 or more years prior to the date of the election. The Academic Fresh Start Option can be exercised only once and must be requested prior to admission to the university.

Students electing to use the Academic Fresh Start Option and who are receiving financial aid should contact the Office of Student Financial Aid and the Veteran Affairs Office (if applicable). Students electing to participate in the Academic Fresh Start program will maintain their current TSI status.

Note: Failure to attend the university during the initial semester of the Academic Fresh Start election will negate the agreement and the student will have to reapply for Academic Fresh Start in a future semester.
