Application Deadlines
  • UT Arlington Deadlines: The Graduate General Application Deadlines are posted at: UTA Application Deadlines web-site.

  • GTA Support Deadlines: In order to receive full consideration for Graduate Teaching Assistantship (GTA) support starting in Fall, applicants need to complete their admission application (https://www.uta.edu/admissions/graduate/apply/) by February 1 of that year. Admission application also serves as GTA application, which will continue to be reviewed until all positions are filled.

    The Math Graduate Affairs committee carefully evaluates and rankes all complete doctoral applications and then makes the recommendations for funding based on available resources. Preference for financial support is given only to Ph.D.-bound graduate students admitted unconditionally into one of our doctoral programs. Due to the limited financial resources, not all unconditionally admitted graduate students are offered support. The number of newly supported graduate students depends on the available financial resources at that time, which is based on how many supported students have graduated, the new external grants that the department secures, and other factors.


Application Status*

To check the status of your application please visit the UT Arlington: Apply web-site or contact the UTA Admissions Office.

*Note that admission decisions cannot be made unless the UTA Admissions Office has received all the required application documents and has determined that your application is complete and ready for an evaluation! Once an admission decision is made on your application, then you will be immediately notified by the UTA Admissions Office.
