If you attend UTSA through CAP, you are not eligible to be considered for the Distinguished Presidential Scholarship. You may be eligible to receive General Scholarships. Find out more under How to Apply.  The deadline to apply for academic and need-based general scholarships is January 15, so CAP students who did not apply directly to UTSA by that deadline will be ineligible. UTSA colleges and departments, however, administer their own scholarship programs and therefore have separate applications with varying deadlines. Check with the college or department to determine which scholarships you may be eligible for and to obtain an application.
