Request Admissions Appeal

How to Appeal 

Submitting an admission appeal does not guarantee admission to UTA. It will only allow for a secondary review of your credentials. Students may only appeal once per term. Appeal processing takes approximately 14-21 days from the day your appeal is received by the Admissions Review Committee. 

Any future undergraduate student who has been denied admission is eligible to appeal the decision with the exception of applicants to the UTA Dual Credit Academy, and students on suspension at another institution.
