Students Returning to UTA After One Calendar Year

You're a returning undergraduate student, or former undergraduate student, if you have not been enrolled at UTA for one calendar year. You must reapply for undergraduate admission by submitting a new Apply Texas application and a new application fee to the Office of Admissions. Applications are being accepted for future terms.

You're a continuing student if you have been officially enrolled at UTA during the calendar year and you are in good academic standing. You will not need to reapply for admission in order to re-enroll in classes. You should meet with your academic advisor prior to registration. If you attended another college or university during this time you will need to submit official transcripts to the Office of Admissions.
