Students in the library

Make it Official – Accept Your Admission Offer

You’re a Longhorn! Let’s make it official.

Secure your place in the Class of 2024 by accepting your offer of admission and, if required, satisfying your $200 enrollment deposit. 

Prepare for Orientation

At Freshman Orientation, you’ll get to know campus, meet with an academic advisor, spend time with other students and register for classes. Starting this spring, register for orientation and start your transition from high school to UT.  

Reserve Housing

Living on campus is an essential part of the freshman experience, and studies show that it can help you earn a higher GPA and graduate on time. Apply for housing or finalize your contract.

Get Funded

The University of Texas at Austin offers a world-class education at a world-class value. Make sure you submit your complete, correct FAFSA by March 15, and if you applied for financial aid, keep an eye on CASH.

Ready Your Mind

Start strong by getting Longhorn Ready—prepare for academic assessments, learn how to claim credit and explore the possibilities of a 360 Connection.
