Application Procedures

To be considered for admission as a freshman, the applicant must submit

  1. A completed State of Texas Common Application for Freshman Admission, including essay
  2. An official high school transcript showing rank and class size and coursework through at least the junior year
  3. An official test score report (SAT I or ACT), sent directly from the testing agency
  4. An application fee or request for fee exemption, described in the section "Application processing fee"

Personalized applications are mailed to students after the University receives their test scores. Applications may also be completed online at the State of Texas Common Application Web site and are available at most Texas high schools.

Applicants may designate the University of Texas at Austin as a test score recipient at the time they take the SAT I or ACT, or they may request that scores be sent to the University by writing directly to the testing agency after they have taken the test. A photocopy of test results is not acceptable.

Admission Tests

The Scholastic Assessment Test I (SAT I) of the College Board or the ACT Assessment of the American College Testing Program is required of all freshman applicants who graduated from high school after the summer of 1956. Applicants are not required to take SAT II: Subject Tests for admission purposes, but must take the SAT II: Subject Test in Writing and the SAT II: Subject Test in Mathematics Level I, IC, or IIC prior to registration to determine placement in rhetoric and composition and mathematics courses.

The test schedules printed in this section indicate the dates the SAT I, the SAT II: Subject Tests, and the ACT Assessment are offered. Applicants who choose to submit the SAT I for admission purposes may not take the SAT II: Subject Tests on the same date. Test scores are received by the University (if the student designates the University as a test score recipient) about five weeks after the test date. Since the receipt of an official report from the testing agency is a crucial part of the application process, applicants should take the SAT I or the ACT no later than December of their senior year. Prospective students who have disabilities may make special testing arrangements by contacting the appropriate testing agency.

Information and registration materials may be obtained from the student's high school counselor or by writing to College Board SAT Program, P O Box 6200, Princeton, New Jersey, 08541-6200; or ACT Registration, P O Box 414, Iowa City, Iowa, 52243-0414.

The College Board maintains a Web site at http://www.collegeboard.org/. The Web address of ACT is http://www.act.org/.
