Prospective AES Recipients Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to complete a separate application to be reviewed for an AES?+

No. The ApplyTexas Freshman Admission application also serves as the application for the AES Program.

What SAT/ACT test scores or other qualifications guarantee an AES award?+

No specific achievement in any category of the AES award factors, including standardized testing, guarantees a scholarship.

Should I include letters of recommendation, an essay and a resume when applying to UT Dallas to be considered for an AES?+

Yes, as the AES awarding process has moved to a holistic review for fall 2021, we encourage students to submit letters of recommendation (maximum of 3), a resume, and/or an essay with their application.

I am applying for admission to a spring term. Will I be automatically reviewed for an AES?+

No, we only review first-time-in-college freshman applicants who are admitted for fall terms.

If I am an out-of-state or international student, will an AES award qualify me for resident tuition rates?+

Students receiving any level of AES award qualify for in-state tuition and fee charges, regardless of their resident status.

I have a third-party scholarship; will this impact my AES offer?+

Any third-party, non-tuition specific scholarships in your name submitted to the Office of Financial Aid will be reimbursed to you once any UT Dallas charges not covered by the AES award are deducted. Third-party scholarships that are tuition specific can only be applied toward tuition and fees and will be applied in lieu of your AES tuition funds. Since third-party scholarships can vary significantly and possibly conflict with the AES offer, students are encouraged to address questions regarding third-party scholarships to: [email protected].

My family has the Texas Tomorrow Fund (or another pre-paid college savings plan). How will this affect my AES?+

Texas Tomorrow Fund and most pre-paid college savings plans can be applied along with AES towards the cost of attendance. A refund will be issued at the lower rate of the pre-paid tuition plan. For more information about pre-paid college savings plans, please contact the Bursar’s Office.
