Applying for admission as an International Undergraduate
You should apply for international undergraduate admission if you
- Are seeking a bachelor’s degree
- Are not a U.S. citizen
- Are not a permanent resident of the U.S.
- Are not attending a Texas high school
- Are an international student who has never attended the University of Texas at Austin
International Application Options
- First-time student? If you are an international student who has never been enrolled in post-secondary study, you should apply as a first-time college student.
- Previous post-secondary experience? If you are an international student who was or is enrolled in post-secondary study at another college or university and are now interested in undergraduate admission at UT Austin, you should apply as an international transfer student.
- Holder of a four-year undergraduate degree? If you have completed the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor’s degree (four years of post-secondary study), you may want to consider applying to a program in the Graduate School. (If you are seeking an additional undergraduate degree or interested in taking additional undergraduate coursework, you should apply as an international transfer student.)
- Law school applicant? To apply to law school, consult the UT School of Law web site.
Admission to the University of Texas at Austin is highly competitive for international students. Complete applications are reviewed on an individual basis after all materials and information related to an applicant's educational background have arrived in the Office of Admissions.
Admission is offered only to the best qualified international applicants who are interested in being full-time, degree-seeking students. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee that an applicant will be offered admission. An applicant’s academic record should indicate excellent preparation for study in the proposed major field.
