Eligibility

Eligibility

Prospective applicants must be:

  1. A Texas resident.  (TAMS/UNT requires that an applicant be a Texas resident based on the parent or court-appointed legal guardian at the time of application. Non-US citizens must provide copies of their Permanent Resident cards, and applicants who have applied for permanent residency may furnish copies of the i-797 Notice of Action reflecting application for the parent and student. Some parents and students with select visa types may also be eligible for Texas residency.)
  2. Enrolled in an accredited or state approved high school program as a 9th, 10th or 11th grader.  [Note: Students who earn admissions to TAMS as 11th graders MUST - without exception - complete two years in the TAMS program at UNT in order to receive verification of high school graduation.  This means that a student will not "complete high school" at the same time of their former traditional high school classmates, but a TAMS/UNT student completes 60+ university credit hours, which puts the student "ahead" of their former traditional school classmates in time-to-degree completion].
  3. Enrolled in or completed Algebra II or higher, having previously completed Algebra I and Geometry.
