There are two gateways to Dean's Scholars: one for high school seniors applying to UT-Austin, the other for college transfer students.

HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS

All incoming, non-transfer students may apply via either the ApplyTexas or Coalition common application, or the separate Honors application at UT-Austin’s Admissions site by December 1. Students who have submitted their application to UT-Austin but did not apply to Dean's Scholars must use the separate Honors application to apply. Application to Dean's Scholars is restricted to students applying to the College of Natural Sciences.

CURRENT UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS STUDENTS AND TRANSFER STUDENTS

Transfer applications are onlineSelect "sign in as guest." Deadline for the spring semester is December 15; for the fall, July 31. Students who have completed more than three semesters of college coursework are not eligible for transfer admission to Dean's Scholars. Applications require a short essay, a résumé, and a letter of recommendation. Detailed instructions are on the application itself.
