UT Dallas McDermott Scholars

McDermott Application Process

We have concluded that the ongoing COVID-19 crisis makes our traditional process for selecting McDermott Scholars, with its intensive interpersonal interactions among 150 people, impossible. The widespread interruptions of SAT and ACT testing creates additional challenges to making selections among applicants. Hence, the McDermott Scholars Program will not admit Freshman Scholars for the 2021-2022 academic year.

We encourage you to apply to UT Dallas.

  1. Apply to UT Dallas by the priority deadline – December 1, 2020. Students must apply by this date to be eligible for the Academic Excellence Scholarship.
    • Pay the UT Dallas application fee before the priority date.
    • Submit official transcripts from all high schools attended.
    • Submit official SAT or ACT scores (not required for 2020-2021).
  2. If admitted, accept admission offer and any relevant scholarship and financial aid awards by the stated deadlines.
