Application review and decision notification

Applicants to all graduate programs are evaluated on The University of Texas requirements for graduate admission. Some programs may have stricter requirements. 

The graduate admissions committee will not review nor make decisions on incomplete files. It is the applicant's responsiblity to ensure the file is complete by the deadline, including all Graduate School and departmental requirements.

Applicants may check your application status on the MyStatus web site. When the admissions committee makes an admission decision on your application, it will appear on MyStatus. We expect admission decisions to be available in late February or early March. Please do not call or email the Graduate Office to check your status. We will not release admissions decisions over the phone or via email.

Enrollment deposit

Admitted students are required to pay a nonrefundable enrollment deposit in the amount of $350 upon admission to indicate acceptance of the admission offer. The deposit is applied to the tuition payment when the student enrolls in the UTSOA graduate program.
