Stay up to date with My Status


My Status is where you checked your application status and received your admissions decision. 

This is your official campus resource and all university communications will be on your dashboard.  Check it often to make sure that you do not miss any important notifications!


My Status will also inform you of important next steps to move forward with your enrollment at UT Austin such as how to:

  • Accept your admission (This is the first step in moving forward with your enrollment including New Student Orientation and On-Campus Housing)


  • Make plans to attend New Student Orientation (Orientation is mandatory for all entering freshman and highly recommended for external transfer students. If personal obligations require specific orientation dates, you should sign-up for a session as soon as possible. Sessions fill quickly on a first-come, first-serve basis.)


  • Check your housing status (A complete admissions application is required to apply for housing. Students must accept their admission before receiving a housing contract.)


  • Check your financial aid status 


  • Find other important information and resources on campus

Your academic Advisor

You will meet with an academic advisor at Orientation to discuss your first semester courses and registration.
