Test Scores and Deadlines
AVAILABLE TEST DATES, INCLUDING DECEMBER DATES
SAT or ACT (with writing) test scores
Plan II does not require any additional tests or scores to apply or be admitted.
- The Cockrell School of Engineering requires evidence of math readiness. Plan II/Engineering applicants should read Calculus Readiness for information about the Aleks math readiness exam.
- The College of Natural Science will require all admitted students to take the ALEKS test. All students required to take a math or statistics course that has an ALEKS pre-requisite are required to take the ALEKS Math Assessment. Business students needing to complete calculus requirements will need to take the ALEKS assessement.
- See Plan II and Credit by Exam for information on Plan II requirements and placement tests
- There is no reporting code for Plan II. Simply report scores to The University of Texas at Austin. Plan II has access to all scores reported to the University.
Test Prep Review service offers on-line SAT practice tests for no charge.
Online ACT practice tests are also available.
AP and SAT II Tests
SAT II and Advanced Placement (AP) test scores are NOT required by either The University of Texas at Austin or by Plan II Honors for an admission decision. Tests may be required after admission for course placement purposes.
Plan II applicants should also remember that although they are not required, high test scores on AP exams (5's) or SAT II tests (750+) will certainly enhance an application to Plan II Honors. Almost all SAT II and AP tests can earn credit hours. These credits often fulfill general education or college requirements and count toward the minimum number of hours required to graduate from the University. In only a very few cases, however, are credits received through tests accepted in lieu of specific Plan II core requirements.
The SAT II scores will not be available in time and so cannot affect your admission decision if you complete your application by November 1. For those applying to meet the November 1 priority deadline, the Plan II admissions committee will not wait for SAT II scores.
Be sure to reference Plan II and Credit by Exam for information on Plan II requirements and placement tests.
