Students who have completed their junior year in high school are eligible to enroll at UTPB under the Early Admission Program (EAP)

In order for students to participate in the EAP, they must:

  1. have completed their junior year in high school
  2. be ranked in the top 25% of their class
  3. have a "B" average
  4. present a minimum score of 950 on the SAT (CR+M) or 19 on the ACT
  5. have the recommendation of their high school principal or counselor
  6. have the approval of their parent of guardian acknowledging an understanding of the program and granting approval for participation

This program is a special benefit to those students that have completed or lack very few units to meet their high school graduation requirements and are ready to begin their university studies. -W. David Watts, President

Students are required to submit the Texas Common Application in addition to an EAP application. They will be required to pay the regular tuition rates and will be permitted to enroll in college courses conducted during and after school hours and during summer terms.

Except for remediation courses and physical activity courses, the students will be allowed to enroll in up to six hours of freshman or sophomore-level courses.
