Graduate Admissions Checklist

Download our UTA Graduate Admissions Checklist so you don't miss application dates and program specific requirements.


You will need to submit official transcripts from each college or university you attended to the Office of Admissions. If you have foreign coursework, you must submit official foreign transcripts, or marksheets and diplomas, that bear the original university seal and original signature of the Registrar. UTA will accept course-by-course evaluations from companies with NACES or AICE membership as long as it includes a copy of your official transcript.

Official Transcript Guidelines

Unofficial Transcript Review

If you have submitted your graduate application, unofficial transcripts may be uploaded for admissions review. If granted admission, official transcripts will be required before you can register for classes. View the document submission page for complete details.

Transcript Submission Page

A Maverick Reminder: Did you submit unofficial transcripts? 

Please be advised, students can submit unofficial transcripts for admission through summer 2023. Students who submit unofficial transcripts to be reviewed for admission will still need to submit their official transcripts once the institution(s) have made them available. Official transcripts should be received no later than the 12th class day of a student’s first semester.  You can submit your official transcripts to the Office of Admissions electronically or by mail. Please review official transcript guidelines for more information. 


Complete Program Requirements

As part of the admissions review process program related documents may be required. Each academic department sets its own admissions criteria. Review program requirements in the University Catalog for more information about these documents, including letters of recommendation, statements of purpose, resumes, portfolios, and more. Departmental application process times vary greatly and some programs require applications up to one year in advance.
