Deadlines for Fall 2021 Admission
December 15, 2020 (recommended) — ApplyTexas application only
January 10, 2021, 11:59pm — everything else
A Note About the Deadlines
While the official deadline is January 10, we highly recommend you complete the ApplyTexas application by December 15. Here’s why: Each of the people writing one of your Letters of Recommendation will receive a secure link for submitting that letter at the email address you provide with their name in your ApplyTexas application. Those emails with secure links will not be sent until you complete and submit the application. Since their recommendation letters must be received by January 10, we advise that you complete the ApplyTexas application by at least December 15 so they’ll receive the link for submitting the letters well in advance of the deadline.
Before You Begin
All applications for graduate admission to The University of Texas at Austin are processed by the Graduate School.

Interviews with Finalists
Finalists in each area will be interviewed via phone or Skype at some point by mid-February. The department will initiate contact with finalists. Please do not contact the department to request an interview.
