Automatic Admission for Children of Certain Deceased Public Servants

An applicant for undergraduate admission (whether a first-time freshman or a transfer student) who is the child of a public servant, as defined in Texas Government Code, Section 615.003 (including law enforcement officers, fire fighters, and others), who was killed or sustained a fatal injury in the line of duty, is entitled to automatic admission as an undergraduate student if the applicant is a high school graduate, meets the application deadline, and submits the paperwork required by Texas Education Code, Section 51.803(c) and (d). Applicants who are automatically admitted under these provisions are subject to certain post-admission requirements when the University determines that the applicant could benefit from additional preparation for college-level work or from inclusion in a retention program, as set out in Texas Education Code, Section 51.803(f).
