First-Year Applications

The Texas Admissions office handles applications for first-year undergraduate students to The University of Texas at Austin. First-year students are students who will have finished high school but not attended another school or college before coming to UT Austin. 

Admittance to UT Austin does not automatically equate to admittance to your preferred major in the College of Natural of Sciences. Learn about application requirements, admissions processes and deadlines—including details about applying for honors, financial aid, housing and more—on the Office of Admissions website

Steps to Applying

The application deadline for fall admission is: December 1. To apply for CNS, be sure to:

  1. Select a Natural Sciences major on your Apply Texas or Common App application. 
  2. Submit all admissions materials as noted by the University’s Office of Admissions.
  3. Check your UT “MyStatus” page to ensure all application materials have been received. More about MyStatus is here.

Applicants seeking fall admission can expect to receive their admission decision anytime between December and March 1. There is not a spring admission cycle available for first-year applicants.
