Once you have submitted your application for admission, your documents are compiled in the Office of Enrollment Services. When your file is complete, meaning your application and all required documentation is submitted, then any undergraduate transfer credit material is evaluated. This includes domestic transfer credit and foreign credential evaluation for undergraduate students. At this point your documents are processed one of two ways:
- If you meet the requirements for assured admission, then you will be admitted and we will contact you to notify you of the admissions decision.
- If you are applying for a program that requires review, or if your current level of academic achievement requires review, then your documents will be sent to be reviewed by a committee. Once the committee has made an admissions decision, you will receive official notification.
The committees do not have representatives who communicate with students. They are formed for the sole purpose of reviewing student application materials to formulate an admission decision. If you wish to include any additional correspondence or communicate additional information, you may submit this information in writing along with your other admission documents.
The length of time for processing varies according to when your file is completed. Once all documents are presented to allow an admissions decision to be made, and the time of the semester in which your file is completed will influence processing time. The closer an application deadline is, the more documentation our office receives. This can increase processing time due to the volume of material we receive in a short period of time. You should allow up to six weeks for processing of application materials.
Following admission, please consult the Steps After Being Admitted page to find out what to do next.
Admission Notification Issues
When you receive your admission notification, please review the information carefully to ensure that your name, address, residency, college, degree and major are all correct. Furthermore, be sure to submit any outstanding documents that are required to complete your student file before the Census Day of your first term here at UT Dallas. If any information is incorrect, please let us know through the Contact Us page. Thank you once again for applying to The University of Texas at Dallas!
