  • UHS Admissions Process
    Students must apply for admission to UHS and meet test and grade point average criteria before enrolling. Students cannot enroll in UHS as a neighborhood school or through Open Enrollment. The TUSD Assessment and Evaluation Department (A&E), not UHS, handles the admission process. A more detailed explanation of the admissions process is available on our Admissions page.

    Criteria for admission to grades 9 and 10:

    1. Score 7,8 or 9 on the CogAT test of cognitive abilities when administered on one of the TUSD scheduled test dates (23-29 points).
    2. Obtain a Grade point average of at least 3.0 in core subjects (English, math, science, and social studies, 22-36 points).
    3. Points must total at least 50.

    Admissions Formula

    Testing. The CogAT test of cognitive abilities is a timed multiple-choice test with verbal, quantitative, and non-verbal batteries. It is an assessment of learned reasoning skills, not of achievement or intelligence. Students must test during one of the scheduled testing days and may not re-test for a given admission year.

    Grades. By submitting an application and allowing a student to test, parents authorize UHS Admissions to obtain grades from the student’s current school.


    Communicating decisions. The Assessment and Evaluation Department will mail notifications at two stages of the process:


    After testing. Test results are mailed in mid-July following spring testing and in January following December testing.


    Admission status. Status notification letters for 8th graders are mailed by early February after A&E has calculated total points based on test results and GPA. All students with 50 points or more will be offered admission to University High School.
