University of Texas International Admissions

The University of Texas International Office is responsible for handling the admissions of international students. The International Student and Scholar services provide international students and scholars with the services they require from application to completion of studies and training. International students should seek out their help on every step of the way.

The admission requirements for International students are as follows:

  • International applicants have to submit documentation showing that they have completed an accredited secondary school series equivalent to that of a U.S. high school.
  • An official record or transcript (mark sheet) that shows all secondary school work and grades (or marks) starting with ninth grade and continuing through at least the end of 11th grade.
  • If the submitted documents are in a language other than English, an official English translation must also be submitted with the original language records.
  • International students are advised to submit their application forms, test scores, and upload transcripts well in advance of deadlines.
  • Transcripts from foreign universities require special evaluation, so by submitting the transcripts early, the university gets enough time to process the application and the applicant gets enough time to obtain visas and make travel arrangements if admission is granted.
  • Funding support documentation guidelines: Documentation for all sources of funding have to be uploaded electronically. Following are the guidelines for submitting financial documentation:
    • All funds must be liquid.
    • Issued within the last 12 months.
