A grade point average of at least 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or comparable grade point average in upper-division work (junior- and senior-level courses) and in any graduate work already completed is required. Applicants admitted to the UT Computer Science graduate program usually have shown their skills in CS by achieving a better than average GPA in their CS courses.

If your GPA does not meet the minimum requirement—or if you feel that your GPA is not a valid indicator of your ability— you may explain your concerns in your statement of purpose.
