Application Information

  1. The Online Application

    We use the ApplyTexas application for visiting students. The application for the summer semester opens on August 1. After you submit your application, you’ll receive an email from us that includes your UT EID. This will allow you to access MyStatus and the Document Upload System. During peak periods, this can take 2-3 days.


  2. Your Application Fee

    Pay the non-refundable $60 application fee when you submit your application. You may request a fee waiver by using the Document Upload System to submit a copy of your most recent financial aid award letter or income tax return.
