For 2014-2015, CASA has an online application that requires a UT EID for login access.  To create an EID for the CASA application, please refer to section 1 of the Application Guide and follow the instructions provided.  

NOTE ABOUT THE APPLICATION:  CASA's online application can be resumed, which means it can be saved if you need to return to it at a later date; however, you must answer all required sections on the page you are currently working on in order to proceed to the next section. 

  • This application will not allow you to skip ahead. 
  • The save and continue option for this application works by placing a cookie on your browser that keeps track of your progress.  Please return to the same Internet browser & computer the survey was started on.  Simply exit out of the application to close and save your session.
  • To successfully resume where you left off, please use the same link to return to the application and once it's complete, please hit the "DONE" button and it will be submitted to CASA for your file. 
  • There is a back button (<) to make edits on previous pages completed; however, the back button may not be available for all pages once you return to a saved application.  It is suggested to make edits, if possible, in a current session.
  • Applicants have 1 month to return to the survey and finish their responses.  After 1 month, the responses will be recorded as-is. 
  • Please note that applications can only be submitted ONCE.  If you find that you need your application deleted from the system, please contact the CASA Stateside office.
