Pay your deposit and submit final transcripts Accept Your Admission
If you’re offered admission to UT Austin and decide to accept your offer, you’ll need to take a couple of steps to make your admission official.
Making your admission official
Pay your enrollment deposit (summer and fall only)
To secure your spot in the incoming class, you’ll need to pay your $200 enrollment deposit or have an official deposit waiver approved by the deadline shown on your MyStatus page. Your enrollment deposit will be applied to your first semester’s Tuition and Fees, and the deposit is not refundable after May 1.
Students admitted for spring aren’t required to pay an enrollment deposit.
Upgrade your UT EID password
Now that you’re admitted to UT Austin, you’re required to upgrade your UT EID password so that it is more secure.
You’ll continue to use your UT EID and password to access important online services online as you complete your transition from high school to the university. You can pay your enrollment deposit, complete your on-campus housing contract, check your financial aid package and more by logging in with your UT EID and password.
Submit final transcripts
As soon as possible after you graduate, we need to receive your final, official high school transcript. You or your high school counselor should submit your transcript to us by mail.
We’ll use your transcript information to confirm your date of graduation and successful completion of the necessary high school credits. (Failure to graduate will result in withdrawal of your admission offer, and a significant drop in your grades may result in withdrawal of your admission offer.)
Although not required to complete your admission, if you complete any college work before enrolling at UT Austin, you should also have the college you attend(ed) submit official transcripts of your work by mail.
Submit emergency contact information
Each UT Austin student must submit emergency contact information for person(s) that he or she would like the university to contact in case of a personal emergency involving the student. Students without emergency contact information on file will not be allowed to register for classes until the information is provided.
The university also requests personal cell phone/provider information (if available) for each student so that the university is able to notify students by text message in case of a campus emergency.
You’ll need to log in to your MyStatus page to submit your emergency contact information.
Submit meningitis vaccination documentation
All entering students must submit proof that they have received a meningitis vaccine (or booster) within the five years immediately before they enroll in classes. Students who have not met the requirement will not be allowed to register for classes at the University of Texas at Austin. Some exemptions are available. Students should allow two weeks for the documentation they submit to be processed.
Visit the University Health Services web site about the meningococcal vaccine requirement for details.
Complete Other Processes
In addition to completing the steps to accept your admission, you’ll also want to make certain that you keep on top of related tasks and processes. You’ll need to see about orientation, financial aid, housing, and testing. After you’re admitted, it’s also a good idea to become familiar with the numerous resources and services that support admitted and enrolled students.
To prepare for enrollment, international students must complete some additional steps such as international student “check-in” and orientation, seeing about immigration issues, and dealing with issues relating to residency status for international Texans.
Medical clearance for international students
International students must provide proof of certain immunizations in order to attend UT Austin. University Health Services provides information about medical requirements for international students online.
