Undergraduate Admissions

Step 1 to Becoming a UT Tyler Student: Connecting You to Your Success

Choosing a college is one of the most important decisions you will make. When you apply to The University of Texas at Tyler, you’re starting on an important path to ensure your future success as a student and in your career.

UT Tyler offers more than 80 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Because our classes are small, with an 18:1 average student-professor ratio, you’ll never be just a face in the crowd. Our professors share their expertise while nurturing your development as a student ready to make a difference in your community. It’s no wonder that many of our graduates have job offers before graduation.

We Make It Easy to Apply at UT Tyler

It all starts at https://goapplytexas.org/ where you fill out an application online. After that, just follow these steps to complete the application process:

  1. First-time freshman and transfer students with less than 30 semester credit hours completed should send an official transcript from each high school and college attended in a sealed envelope or electronic service from the issuing institution to the UT Tyler Office of Admissions (address provided below). Also, request that official SAT or official ACT scores are sent from the testing agency. To request that your scores be sent after the exam, use the following codes:

    UT Tyler SAT code: 6850
    UT Tyler ACT code: 4231

    Transfer students who have completed 30 or more semester credit hours at an accredited institution after high school graduation should mail, or send through electronic service, an official transcript from each college or university attended to:

    UT Tyler Office of Admissions
    3900 University Blvd.
    Tyler TX 75799

    Transfer students who are requesting their previous institution's transcript be sent via an official electronic transcript service can list processing@uttyler.edu as the recipient email address.

  2. Submit a non-refundable application fee:

    $60 for domestic students or $75 for international students. This fee may be waived if you received an SAT or ACT waiver to test, or if you’ve submitted a financial hardship appeal.
