Admission Procedures

Navarro College maintains an open door admission policy, and students are admitted without regard to race, color, religion, creed, gender, age, national origin, ancestry, disability, marital status, or veteran status. The college reserves the right to verify citizenship and residency status of any applicant.

The college reserves the right to refuse admission to any student who does not comply with admission requirements or where evidence exists that the presence of the applicant would be incompatible with the aims or objectives of the college or where, in the judgment of the college Admissions Committee, the applicant’s presence on campus would not be in the best interest of the student or the college community. An individual may appeal such refusal to the Vice President of Academic Affairs.

The Office of Admissions and Records is responsible for administering all admissions policies. Inquiries concerning admissions should be addressed to the attention of this office.

Completion of the following steps are necessary to gain admission to Navarro College:

  1. Application for Admission.
  2. Official Transcript.
    • Beginning Students. An official transcript bearing the signature of the appropriate official, seal and date of graduation of the applicant’s high school record must be filed in the Office of Admissions & Records before an application for admission will be considered,
    • Transfer Students. Transfers from another college are required to present a complete transcript bearing the signature of the appropriate official and seal from each college attended.
  3. Assessment Scores Student proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics must be assessed. This is accomplished by taking the TSI Assessment. Students otherwise qualified will not be refused admission on the basis of their scores. Results are used in advising and in placing students in the proper course levels.
  4. Proof of Residency A student may submit a state-issued driver’s license or identification card and show proof of having established local residency for 12 months or more without enrollment (or other approved documentation) to determine residency as either in-district, out-of-district, or out-of-state. The office of the Director of Admissions/Registrar can provide additional information concerning state requirements. Certain programs such as honors programs, Residence Life, as well as instructional areas (e.g. Cosmetology, Welding, Oil and Gas), Allied Health (e.g. Nursing, OTA, PTA) and Protective Services (e.g. Police, Fire and EMS) will require additional standards of conduct and may involve additional requirements for admissions and sanctions against student misconduct. 


Navarro College will not offer distance education classes to students whose primary residence is out of state unless those students are also attending face to face classes on one of the physical campuses of the College District.

Navarro College is currently not a member of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA); therefore, it is not authorized to provide distance learning courses to students whose official residence is located in a U.S. State or Territory which is outside the State of Texas.
