The preliminary application gives the Department of Bioengineering a rough and unofficial idea of your credentials, background, test scores, degrees, universities attended, GPAs, and the courses you have taken. It also helps us make a decision whether or not we should encourage you to formally apply. Its benefit to you is we can see whether or not you are a competitive candidate, and you can save money on the application fee if and until we ask you to formally apply. There is no fee for the preliminary application.
The preliminary application cannot be used as your official application to the University of Texas at Arlington. You must formally apply with the Graduate School by the admissions deadline and pay an application fee to be formally considered.
