Admissions Information Related to COVID-19

In an effort to support social distancing in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Office of Admission and Enrollment has moved virtually. While our campus may be closed, our undergraduate admission counselors and staff are ready to help you. If you are a prospective first-time-in-college freshman or transfer student, you can visit our counselor locator page to find your undergraduate admission counselor. Feel free to email them directly or send any questions to [email protected]. You can also schedule a virtual pre-admission counseling appointment. For graduate applications support, please contact the graduate departments directly.

Visit our undergraduate virtual resources webpage and the undergraduate admissions C19-FAQ for up-to-date information. We appreciate your understanding — please stay safe and healthy.

What is your favorite local restaurant?

For a great burger, you have to try Twisted Root Burger Co. here in Richardson.

How did your college experience help shape who you are?

My college experience made me more independent and confident in my abilities. It also helped me develop friendships that continue to shape me to this day. Much of what you experience in college will continue to influence your life for years to come.

What advice do you have for students beginning their college search?

I recommend students visit every school they are interested in. Don’t be afraid to ask questions! If you are unsure of anything, reach out to the admissions counselors at that school, they are there to help.
