Department of Art and Art History Undergraduate Admissions

Degree Holders

If you are a prospective student looking at our programs and admissions information, please be aware that we’ll be launching a new website in August 2017. While much of the content will be the same, its organization will be somewhat different. Please bear with us as we make this necessary change, and don’t hesitate to reach out to our admissions staff if you have any problems with the new website.

Applicants who have never attended UT Austin but have already completed an undergraduate or graduate degree elsewhere, and are interested in applying to one our undergraduate degree programs, will apply to UT Austin as an undergraduate transfer student. Please follow the instructions for Transfer applicants.

If you are a former UT Austin student who was last an undergraduate major in our department, you will need to complete an Application for Readmission as a Former Student with the UT Austin Office of Admissions.

Readmission deadlines for former students are as follows:

  • July 1 for Fall semester
  • December 1 for Spring semester
  • May 1 for Summer sessions

If you wish to participate in the advising and registration period that occurs in the semester preceding the semester you wish to return to UT Austin, it is required that you complete the readmission process well in advance of the deadlines and advising periods (April for Summer and Fall enrollment and October for Spring enrollment). You may consult the academic calendar for those dates.

If you are a former UT Austin student, but graduated with a degree from another college on campus and you wish to return to pursue additional course work or earn a second degree, you will need to complete an Application for Readmission as a Former Student. As a former student, you will be readmitted into the last major code you held at the time you left the university. If you plan to change major to the Department of Art and Art History, you will also need to simultaneously apply for an internal change of major or addition of simultaneous major.
