Scholarships, Guaranteed Admission Highlight EMS ISD, Tarleton State Agreement

Graduating seniors from Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD in the top 50% of their class will now have automatic acceptance into Tarleton State University.

Through Tarleton's Distinguished High School Partnership Program, seniors from each EMS ISD high school will have the admissions application fee waived if they meet Tarleton’s acceptance criteria and will not have to submit required ACT (American College Test) and SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) scores. 

EMS ISD seniors who are eligible for the Tarleton President’s Guaranteed Scholarship Program (GSP) will receive a scholarship award guarantee. Because EMS ISD is now a Distinguished High School Partner, students are eligible for a larger scholarship award level ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 depending on class rank and test scores. The scholarship money will be given annually for four years.
