ApplyTexas logo. Many Schools. One Application.
The freshman scholarship application process for UT Austin is available strictly to entering (new) freshman students through the ApplyTexas web site. ApplyTexas offers a centralized means for both Texas and non-Texas students to apply to most postsecondary institutions in the State of Texas. The ApplyTexas U.S. Freshman Application currently consists of three sections: admissions, scholarships and essays.

Application Deadline
The deadline to submit the ApplyTexas Application is December 1.

How To Apply
To create a scholarship application, follow the steps below.
  1. Begin an ApplyTexas Application and select UT Austin as your target university. You must begin the Admission Section of the application before you are given access to the Scholarship Section.
  2. Complete and save the Admission Section. Doing so will lead you into the Scholarship Section. Much of your scholarship information is directly tied to the Admission Section, so it is very important that you save your admission information before you begin the Scholarship Section.
  3. Saved applications may be edited prior to submission by accessing them directly from the My Account page under the corresponding App ID.
PLEASE NOTE: The Office of Financial Aid at The University of Texas at Austin will not accept any updates or edits to the Scholarship Section of the ApplyTexas Application. Once the application has been submitted, changes cannot be made.
