The University of Texas at Austin

Sometimes students submit their ApplyTexas Application without paying the fee at the same time. If you submit your application without paying your fee, the university will create an electronic bill for you.

When you’re ready to pay your fee bill, log in to MyStatus. Skim the list of to-do items on the Admissions tab for the one that asks you to pay your application fee. Click the message and then click the "Application Fee" link.   

Students who pay their fee online after submitting their applications are able to pay by credit card (MasterCard, American Express or Discover) or by electronic check. If you need to pay by check or money order, send your payment only after you submit your ApplyTexas application. It can take five to seven days for paper checks/money orders to be processed after they arrive in the Office of Admissions.

For questions about paying your application fee, please call 512-475-7387.
