Applying for Honors
Interested in an honors program at The University of Texas at Austin?
If you submit your Fall 2020 application immediately before or on the deadline, we will consider your honors application and required materials as on time if you submit them through 11:59 p.m. (Central) on Monday, December 9. Please note: you won’t be able to use our Document Upload System until we receive your application, which can take up to three days after submission.
In order to be considered for a freshman honors program, you must apply for fall admission. Spring and summer applicants are not eligible. Based on the majors you select on your admissions application, you may be eligible to apply to one or more honors programs. You may start the application process by responding to the short-answer question(s) of the program of your choice which will display on your ApplyTexas or Coalition application. Most freshman honors programs also require a separate expanded résumé and some require one letter of recommendation. Self-report any AP or IB scores you may have taken or plan to take on your résumé.
Not ready to apply right away? You may also apply by using the separate on-line honors application available after submitting your ApplyTexas or Coalition application for admission and gaining access to MyStatus.
