Applicants with an overall GPA below a 3.25 and equal to or greater than 2.5 will be considered for admission through a competitive review process. The review is based on the grades earned in English 1310, English 1320, Math 1329 and the overall GPA from all colleges and universities attended. Applicants denied admission to McCoy College will be considered for admission to the University as exploratory professional (undecided).
To apply to McCoy College you must select the business major of your choice as your first major option on the ApplyTexas Application.
