The University of Texas-Pan American has extended its application deadline for the fall 1998 semester to Monday, Aug. 17.
Applicants must turn in an application form, test scores and supporting documents such as high school or college transcripts by Aug. 17. For the first time, in accordance with a new state regulation, all undergraduate applicants also must show they have taken the Texas Academic Skills Program (TASP) test before they will be allowed to enroll in classes.
Graduate students entering any program at UT Pan American in fall 1998 will not be required to take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) or Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) before admission. Students who take at least three hours during the fall and complete those hours with at least a 3.0 grade point average will automatically receive clear admission. The moratorium on the graduate admissions tests is expected to be for the fall semester only and is related to the changeover of the GRE and GMAT from paper to computer formats.
Students who apply now will register for fall classes on Aug. 26 and 27 in the University Fieldhouse. Registrants will be given an appointment time in their registration packets at a mandatory orientation session.
Fall classes begin Aug. 31.
