Because TCU is a selective university, we are able to consider all credentials, both academic and extracurricular, as well as teacher and counselor evaluations, when reviewing an application for admission.
TCU has no minimum requirement for GPA or test score to be considered for admission. (See our Testing Policy.) For the class that entered TCU in Fall 2019, the middle 50 percent scored between 1150 and 1340 on the SAT, or between 26 and 31 on the ACT.
Through several methods, above-average students may earn academic credit for college-level learning by taking an examination in the appropriate area. Read more about college credit, including TCU’s Advanced Placement, CLEP, Portfolio Assessment, Advanced Standing Examinations, IB, Conference Examinations and Audition Examinations.
