  • Make sure you are completing the required pre-requisite courses
  • Identify your areas of strength and opportunities for growth
  • Create goals that will support your application
  • Navigate the application process

Admission Requirements

When you apply to UTSA, you select the major you'd like to study. The choice of major will not impact if you get admitted to the University (all students must meet UTSA's general admission requirements); however, some majors will require additional admission requirements to be able to declare the major your freshman year.

Medicine: There are no additional admission requirements to pursue medicine at UTSA other than meeting JAMP requirements. Depending on your declared major while pursuing medicine pre-requisites, you may be required to meet unique admissions requirements for your declared major. Please reference the degree program you intend to pursue for more details!
