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.
