Hello all!
I'd like to know your university's policies for incoming students with substantial amounts of dual credit, especially those from [early college high schools] and those with [more than 24 hours]:

  1.  Do you treat these students as freshmen or as transfers for [admissions] purposes?
  2.  Would you ever admit freshmen you would otherwise deny (due to rank/GPA/SAT/ACT) because their substantial dual credit meets transfer requirements (especially those who are core-complete?) If so, does this occur during the individual review, committee, or appeals stage?
  3.  Do you ever treat these freshman students as transfers for [merit-based scholarship] purposes?
  4.  Are they eligible for Phi Theta Kappa scholarships?

To avoid annoying everyone, please email answers to bethany at uta.edu<mailto:bethany at uta.edu>!
