Note: International Students requesting an I-20 (F1) or a DS-2019 (J1) are not eligible to begin their study at UT Dallas during a 2nd 8-week session.

Contact the International Student Services Office at (972) 883-4189 for more information.

*International applicants with visa types other than F1 or J1 visas may adhere to the Domestic Application deadlines and dates, but still will be assessed late fees according to the international deadline dates

UT Dallas encourages all students to submit their application as early as possible, as it can take from 4 to 6 weeks to process. Applications submitted after the application deadline and before the Completed Application Deadline (application and all required documents) deadline will still be processed; however, a decision may not be reached in time for students to avoid late registration.

The last day to register for classes coincides with the last day to add class (See the Academic Calendar at www.utdallas.edu/calendar).

After receiving an application acknowledgement letter which includes a student ID number or NetID, students may check status to determine the status of their application and whether all required documents have been received. Undergraduate students can also call the Office of Admission and Enrollment Services at (972) 883-2270 to check the status of their application. Graduate students should contact the program to which they applied for more information.
