These components give young people the confidence to map out a post-secondary plan that aligns with their individual skills and interests. An ASVAB representative will be at school on Monday, February 5, 2018, to provide interpretation of student results.

Any sophomore, junior or senior who wants to take the test may sign up in the counselor’s office from January 3-12.

Subject:  The University of Texas at Austin Automatic Admission Policy (2017)

Attention Junior students/parents:

Senate Bill 175, passed in 2009, took effect with the 2011-12 academic year, and essentially modifies the "Top 10%" automatic admission program at The University of Texas at Austin. This is due to the growth of the number of high school graduates which has translated into significant growth in the number of applications for admissions and the number of applicants eligible for automatic admissions.

SB 175 allows The University of Texas at Austin to limit automatic admission to 75 percent of the university’s enrollment capacity designated for first-time resident undergraduate students.

The University has determined that it will automatically admit all eligible 2019 summer/fall freshman applicants who rank within the top 6% of their high school graduating classes, with remaining spaces to be filled through holistic review.

Any student who wants to take TVCC Dual credit classes must first pass the TSI, which is a college entrance exam. TVCC will be at the Eustace High School campus on Friday, September 22 and Thursday, October 26, to administer this exam for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors and seniors who have not taken and passed all 3 sections, and would like to be eligible to take dual credit courses in the future (freshmen will be eligible to take welding in the Fall of 2018). Eustace ISD will pay for two attempts to take the test and pass it- after that the student must pay the $30 test fee. So, if your student has already taken the test at least 2 times, you must pay the test fee before or on the day of the test. Study resources are located at:
