A new CSS PROFILE will be required if you defer for more than one semester. Should you enroll in another university during that time, you will have to reapply as a transfer student.

We will be flexible and work closely with students and institutions to ensure we have the documents we need without creating additional stress.

 TCU is test-optional for entering first-year students in fall 2021. Test scores have always been just one part of our review of a student’s academic preparation. Students who elect not to submit test scores will not be penalized for admission or scholarship consideration. We will focus on other elements of a student’s academic profile as part of our holistic application review.

We will be offering virtual interviews hosted by students and counselors. Information about these opportunities will be updated on our website and emailed out – so be sure to join our mailing list.
