Applying for Admission
If you have already started your post-secondary studies at another college or university after graduating from high school or earning a GED, and have or will have earned 24 semester hours of required transferable coursework (30 hours for Summer/Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 applicants) at another college or university, apply for transfer admission.
Grace Period for Uploaded Items
If you submit your spring 2018 ApplyTexas application immediately before or on the deadline, we will consider uploaded items and online forms on time if you submit them through 11:59 p.m. (Central) on Friday, October 6. You won’t be able to use the Document Upload System until we receive your ApplyTexas application — that can take up to three days after submission.
