Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Admission to the Cockrell School of Engineering is based on criteria similar to but higher than those for admission to the University. To be considered for admission to the School of Engineering, you must meet the school's Calculus Readiness requirement by the official admissions application deadline. For information about options to satisfy the requirement, please refer to the school’s online resources about the Calculus Readiness Requirement.
For additional information, contact Engineering Student Services at (512) 471-4321 or refer to the school’s online resources about Undergraduate Admission at http://www.engr.utexas.edu/undergraduate/admissions.


Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

To apply for admission to the Cockrell School, use the online form at http://admissions.utexas.edu and select engineering as a first-choice major. When selecting a second-choice major, freshman applicants may choose from one of the many other majors offered at The University of Texas at Austin. However, we encourage students to indicate a second engineering major choice when applying to the Cockrell School.
Minimum requirements are the same for all engineering departments; however, enrollment in any engineering department is limited to the best qualified applicants. Because admission to all engineering departments is so competitive, automatic admission is restricted to the most qualified applicants. See website: https://admissions.utexas.edu/apply/decisions .

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

The applications of prospective students from countries other than the United States are reviewed on an individual basis, and admission may not be offered to every student who meets the minimum requirements. Admission is offered only to those international applicants who will be full-time students seeking degrees. Academic background and curriculum are important considerations in decisions on admissibility. All applicants to an engineering major must satisfy the Calculus Readiness requirement. For more information about International student admission requirements, visit the University's Admissions web site at https://admissions.utexas.edu/apply.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Nonresident applicants must have graduated from an accredited high school and satisfied the high school unit requirements. Please refer to the General Information catalog (http://registrar.utexas.edu/catalogs/ ) for a detailed listing of coursework. All applicants to an engineering department must satisfy the Calculus Readiness requirement. Admission decisions are based on an evaluation of the criteria listed in the General Information Catalog (though no specific class rank, test score, or other qualification by itself assures admission). As a state-assisted public institution, the University reserves a majority of its spaces for Texas residents; consequently, admission of nonresidents is more competitive. Although graduation from an accredited high school is a prerequisite for admission to the University, graduates of unaccredited high schools and home-schooled students may be considered for admission by individual approval. For further admission information, please refer to the University’s undergraduate admissions site at http://admissions.utexas.edu

Residency Requirements

All University students must complete in residence at least sixty semester credit hours of the coursework counted toward the degree. In the School of Engineering, thirty of these sixty hours must be in the major field or in a field closely related to the major as approved by the major department and the dean. At least the last twenty-four hours of technical coursework counted toward an engineering degree must be taken while the student is registered as an undergraduate engineering major at the University. A student seeking exception to this requirement must obtain written approval in advance from the dean. For further information, please refer to the Undergraduate Catalog at http://registrar.utexas.edu/catalogs/ .

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

To be eligible for transfer admission consideration, the student must have: 1) earned a high school diploma or the equivalent, and 2) completed a minimum of 30 semester hours of transferable credit. All transfer applicants to an engineering major must show credit for the equivalent of M408D or M408L or M408M, Physics 303K, Physics 103M (lab) and must have completed a minimum of four technical courses (math, physics, chemistry, biology, geology, computer science, and engineering). Any U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident Immigrant degree-seeking undergraduate applicant who has previously attended a college or university following high school graduation (or the equivalent) and earned any amount or type of credit is considered a transfer student and is no longer eligible for entering freshman admission consideration. For further information, please visit the undergraduate admissions site at http://admissions.utexas.edu

Number of Transfer Students from:

A two-year community junior college where they were full-time students: 88
A four-year college or university where they were full-time students: 128

Special Programs or Fee Structures

Longhorn Fixed Tuition is an optional tuition program available only to undergraduate students enrolling at UT Austin for the first time.
For four consecutive academic years students will pay a fixed tuition rate each semester. Fixed tuition rates are based on the projected average of flat rate tuition over the next four years. As with traditional flat rate tuition, the fixed tuition amount will vary depending on the school the student is enrolled in as well as the number of hours the student is enrolled.
Students who enroll in Longhorn Fixed Tuition and graduate in four years will be eligible for a total of $3,500 in rebates (inclusive of existing rebate programs). Rebates will be paid upon graduation.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Admission requirements vary depending on the specific degree you pursue. Contact the graduate adviser or coordinator in your specific area of interest for more information or to arrange a visit to the Cockrell School of Engineering. For information, see http://www.engr.utexas.edu/graduate/admissions/contacts .
Follow the application instructions for your specific program:
IMPORTANT: Many Cockrell School graduate programs require supplemental information in addition to the requirements for The University of Texas at Austin Graduate School.
For complete information on admissions requirements and helpful links, please see http://www.engr.utexas.edu/graduate/admissions

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

See above.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

In addition to meeting the general requirements for admission, applicants whose native language is not English must demonstrate sufficient competence in English to study effectively at the University. These applicants are required to submit scores on either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) to the Graduate School.
Because transcripts from foreign universities require special evaluation, prospective international students are advised to submit their application forms, test scores, and transcripts well in advance of deadlines. Early submission gives the University enough time to process the application and gives the applicant enough time to obtain visas and make travel arrangements if admission is granted. A nonrefundable processing fee is required with each application for admission to the Graduate School, the McCombs School of Business, or the School of Law. All payments must be in US dollars and drawn on US banks. Current fee amounts are given in the General Information Catalog.
International students must maintain approved comprehensive health insurance or coverage. The student’s registration bill includes the premium for the University health insurance policy, unless approval to substitute alternate, comparable coverage has been given by the International Office.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Students seeking admission to the Graduate School should consult the UT Graduate School website at https://gradschool.utexas.edu for admission information and application forms. Students should also consult the graduate advisor for the engineering program to which they apply at http://www.engr.utexas.edu/graduate/ for information on additional requirements and materials.

Residency Requirements

Texas law classifies each person who applies for admission to a Texas public college or university as a resident of Texas, a nonresident, or a foreign (international) student. How students are classified is important because it determines whether they pay non-resident tuition rates or in-state rates, which are lower. For further information on residency requirements, see website: http://admissions.utexas.edu/residency/

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Ordinarily, all work for the master’s degree must be done at the University of Texas at Austin. Under some circumstances, a maximum of six semester hours of graduate coursework in which the grade is A or B may be transferred to the Program of Work from another institution, but only on the basis of a petition by the Graduate Studies Committee and with the approval of the graduate dean. A student seeking a transfer of credit must provide the Graduate School with an official transcript and an official explanation of the course numbering and grading systems at the school at which the credit was earned. Only graduate courses may be transferred. Work counted toward a degree at another institution cannot be transferred. Students are encouraged to seek approval before taking any coursework they plan to transfer. Students should not take courses at another institution during the semester they plan to graduate because the grades may not be received in time to certify the student’s Program of Work for graduation. Unless its inclusion has been approved by the graduate dean, no coursework listed on the Program of Work may be over six years old.
The doctoral Program of Work normally includes no more than six semester hours of courses transferred from another university. The Graduate School recognizes that the academic background of each doctoral student is different, and exceptions to the six-hour maximum may be granted with approval of the Graduate Studies Committee.
Transferred coursework as described in this section appears only on the student’s Program of Work. It does not appear on the official student record maintained by the registrar. Because it is not part of the official record, such coursework does not appear on the student’s transcript and is not included in either the graduate grade point average or the Program of Work grade point average.

Special Programs or Fee Structures

Longhorn Fixed Tuition is an optional tuition program available only to undergraduate students enrolling at UT Austin for the first time.
For four consecutive academic years students will pay a fixed tuition rate each semester. Fixed tuition rates are based on the projected average of flat rate tuition over the next four years. As with traditional flat rate tuition, the fixed tuition amount will vary depending on the school the student is enrolled in as well as the number of hours the student is enrolled.
Students who enroll in Longhorn Fixed Tuition and graduate in four years will be eligible for a total of $3,500 in rebates (inclusive of existing rebate programs). Rebates will be paid upon graduation.

Additional Financial Aid Information

Graduate students at The University of Texas at Austin generally support themselves in one of the following ways: departmental aid in the form of scholarships, fellowships, and assistantships; fellowships administered by the Office of Graduate Studies; need-based financial aid administered by the Office of Financial Aid, and outside funding or employment.
The Cockrell School of Engineering offers academically competitive students financial packages that include one or more fellowships, paid teaching or research positions, insurance and tuition coverage. After completing an admission application, you will be considered for any available fellowships and accompanying support. Graduate committees in each department nominate top applicants for these awards.
Students planning to pursue a doctoral degree receive special consideration for full funding packages, including multi-year fellowship and stipend support. There are also a number of one-year fellowships for both future and current students. Future graduate students usually receive fellowship offers from the Cockrell School in early to mid-spring. Current graduate students usually receive fellowship notifications during the summer.
Both incoming and current students must be nominated for any fellowships available from the Cockrell School. View the list of Graduate Degree Program Contacts ( http://www.engr.utexas.edu/graduate/admissions/contacts) to visit with the person in your department who can advise you on available fellowship opportunities.
The Engineering Scholarship Program posts information regarding external fellowship opportunities for graduate and postdoctoral students on the Current Scholarships & Fellowships page.
The University of Texas Graduate School provides additional information on financial aid, university fellowships, and nationally competitive fellowship programs; see website at https://gradschool.utexas.edu/finances.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
