Fresh Start

Under the provisions of the Texas Education Code, Section 51.931, a Texas resident is entitled to apply for admission and elect to have all academic course work earned 10 or more years prior to the requested enrollment date ignored for admission purposes.

The following description of the Academic Fresh Start Program should be read carefully. Be sure you understand the terms of this program and agree to its stipulations before signing. Upon receipt of this signed acknowledgement, admissions application and all supporting documents, you will be considered for admission for the semester or summer session you choose under the provisions of the Academic Fresh Start Program pursuant to Section 51.931, Texas Education Code.

The Academic Fresh Start Program is available to Texas residents who have applied to Angelo State University with all the necessary credentials submitted to the Office of Admissions by the appropriate deadline.

If you request the Academic Fresh Start by signing the Academic Fresh Start acknowledgement, all academic work (including any Angelo State University coursework) that was earned 10 or more years prior to the starting date of the semester in which you seek to enroll will not be considered in determining your eligibility for admission.

Former students who wish to reenter Angelo State University under the Fresh Start Program will be evaluated for admission on the basis of a single grade point average on all coursework attempted in the last ten years (whether at Angelo State University or elsewhere) and must meet current admission requirements.

Coursework (either from Angelo State University or elsewhere) ignored for admission purposes will remain on the student’s official Angelo State University academic transcript. However, it cannot be used to fulfill Angelo State University degree requirements or to remove any existing high school deficiencies.

Individuals who choose Academic Fresh Start must meet current published admission criteria for Angelo State University and must submit official records from all colleges attended.

To avoid being denied admissions, students should submit this request at the time of application. Forms must be submitted no later than the first day of the semester for which the student is requesting fresh start.
