After Applying

Applicants can generally expect an acceptance and welcome letter a few days after all documentation and application fee have been submitted. At that time, you will receive additional instructions on your I-20, visa interview, and medical requirements like tuberculosis screening and the meningitis vaccine. We also supply our future incoming students with guides to assist  in finding housing and transportation from the airport to UT Tyler.
