How to Apply to Lamar University

Future Lamar University students should apply for admission online using the statewide Apply Texas system. To complete your application, you also may be required to submit transcripts of previous high school and/or college work. 

Undergraduate Admission


First time freshman beginning Spring 2021 and beyond will not be required to submit standardized test scores (ACT/SAT) in order to receive an admissions decision. Students will only be required to submit their official high school transcripts under this new test-optional format. If a student has at least 18 hours of dual-credit, they may also be admitted if their overall GPA is greater than 2.0.

Transfer students with fewer than 18 hours of college credit, should also have official copies of all prior college and university transcripts sent to Lamar University. This applies regardless of the length of attendance and regardless of whether credit was earned.
