Free Advice Friday!

Bookmark and Share
High School Seniors: If you are planning on applying to University of Texas - Austin for the Fall 2010 class, you have 1 month left to get your transcript, resume, essays (2), optional recommendation letters, high school profile, test scores, and your overall application into the admissions office. DECEMBER 15, 2009 DEADLINE

Starting with 2009 applicants,* The University of Texas at Austin implemented some changes to its summer/fall deadlines for freshman admission. Here are the expected deadline shifts for the next couple of years:

Applicants to Summer/Fall 2010
» December 15, 2009
Applicants to Summer/Fall 2011
» December 1, 2010

* The summer/fall 2009 application deadline was January 15, 2009.
The deadline changes are planned to allow the Office of Admissions to make admission decisions earlier in the spring of an applicant’s senior year. The February 1 deadline, which had been in place for years, often meant that applicants had to wait for their admission decisions until late March or even April 1. Earlier decisions will mean that students are able to begin their post-admission, enrollment planning earlier.

Remember also that UT does not combine test score sittings. They look at your overall BEST test session for the ACT or SAT. They do not require SAT II scores. You can look at the college board site to see which other schools on your list look at the overall best test date and do not combine test score sittings.

You can view score-use practices by college/university by visiting College Board's College Search website. Select an institute of interest, and then go to the SAT®, AP®, CLEP® icon (under each institution) for score-use practice information.

Additionally, you can download the SAT Score-Use Practices List (.pdf/1.8MB), which provides an alphabetical listing of score-use practices of colleges and scholarship programs which have submitted score-use practices as of July 2009.
