UT - Austin's NEW Essay Requirements and NEW Priority Deadlines

UT-Austin has just released their new essay requirements. Click HERE for the information you need.

Simplified Essay Requirements
All freshman applicants will be required to submit one essay -- in response to Topic A -- in ApplyTexas. Other long-form essays in ApplyTexas (B, C, D, S, etc.) will no longer be needed for freshman applicants.

As part of ApplyTexas all freshman applicants will also respond to three short-answer questions to provide UT Austin with information about the applicant’s major/career interests, academics and leadership. Responses to short answers are required items in UT Austin's ApplyTexas freshman admissions application.

Applicants to a few majors will have additional requirements. Nursing applicants will submit an additional long-form essay (Essay N) outside the ApplyTexas process. Applicants to Social Work and Art/Art History will also submit an additional short answer response in ApplyTexas.

New Freshman Priority Deadline

The Office of Admissions and UT Austin’s freshman honors programs have adopted two application deadlines:

November 1 – Priority Application Deadline (notification no later than February 1)

December 1 – Regular Application Deadline (notification no later than March 1)

The Office of Admissions and each freshman honors program will notify students who meet the priority application deadline no later than February 1. Priority notifications will include offers of admission to majors and acceptance to honors programs as well as deferrals. A deferral is a notification saying that a little more time is needed for the student’s final decision. Students who are deferred will receive final decisions no later than March 1.

Visit Texas Admissions – Applying for Admission for details about the essays/short answers, deadlines and everything else that’s required for freshman applicants.

Enjoy the rest of your summer and let us know how we can help!

AP Test Information

If your child took an AP Exam in May, they will get access to their AP scores between Wednesday, July 5, and Sunday, July 9, depending on their location.

To help your child get ready for AP scores, encourage them to:

Create a College Board account here. It's required to access scores. If they already have an account, have them sign in now to make sure they remember their username and password. Keep in mind that this College Board account is the same account used to register for the SAT, SAT Subject Tests, and for retrieving and sending scores for those exams. We recommend that students create a safe place to store passwords for log-ins such as this as they will need to access these sites often.

Make sure they have their 2017 AP number. This is the eight-digit number on the barcoded labels in the AP Student Pack booklet provided during this year's exams. They may be asked for this number when accessing their scores. They may also use their student ID number if they provided it on their AP answer sheet.
