Steps to Apply
Getting started at Blinn is easy! We maintain an open admissions policy, and our goal is to serve the community by offering a quality education to all students.
All new students and returning students who have not attended Blinn for an entire Fall or Spring semester must apply to the College District. Blinn utilizes the ApplyTexas application system, also referred to as the Texas Common Application. Once a student has created an account, the student should choose the two-year application, then select Blinn College.
Blinn no longer accepts a paper application. All applicants must apply through ApplyTexas.
Blinn encourages all current and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces to speak with the Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within their respective military branch prior to enrolling at any institution of higher education.
Blinn is an open-enrollment institution. Most students will be accepted and eligible to register for classes once they submit all required admissions documents.*

Transcripts or GED Scores
Students must submit a completed, official copy of their high school transcript or GED scores as well as transcripts from any college/university previously attended. Emailed copies of high school transcripts will be accepted if sent directly from the high school to firstname.lastname@example.org. Blinn College does not accept any emailed high school or college transcripts sent directly from the student/parent. Most Texas Colleges/Universities can send transcripts electronically through the SPEEDE system. All college/university transcript should be sent through SPEEDE, unless that is not an option. Emailed official college/university transcripts sent to email@example.com will take longer to process. Mailed transcripts should be sent to:

Proof of Residency

Course needed for pre-requisite is in progress at another institution.
Students will need to send a PDF copy of their unofficial transcript showing the required pre-requisite listed as in progress at their current institution to the Division Operations Coordinator for the division that the course falls under for consideration and approval to register for the class. For contact information, please visit the Academic Divisions page.
If approval to register for the course is given, upon successful completion of course, students will need to submit official copies of transcripts with updated course information. Failure to provide updated official transcripts, two weeks prior to the start of classes, will lead to the course being dropped.
Please note Blinn College requires official transcripts to complete a student’s enrollment. Students will need to request official transcripts sent from their previous institutions to Blinn College. For more information on submitting the required documents please see the "Submit Required Documents" section (above).
Students must complete the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Assessment unless a qualifying test score or proof of exemption is provided.
