First-Time Freshmen


Update Your Application

You may update your current application to a new term by completing and submitting our Undergraduate Update Application Form. This will let our office know of your new expected term of entry to UT Arlington, any address changes, any changes in major, any additional colleges attended since your last application, and any citizenship or residency changes.

You should only complete this application IF:

  • You have previously submitted an undergraduate application for admission within two semesters prior to your new expected term of entry. If it has been longer than two semesters, you must submit a new application by applying at

  • You are continuing in the EAP (Early Admission) program.

  • You have applied, been admitted, or even enrolled in a term which has not yet started, but would like to update to an earlier term which has also not yet started.

You do not need to update if you are currently enrolled at UT Arlington and plan to continue your enrollment at UT Arlington the next term.

Application Fee

You do not have to pay the application fee IF:

  • You paid the application fee with your initial undergraduate application to UT Arlington or you are continuing in the EAP program.


  • You have not previously updated your application to another term. UT Arlington allows you to update your application to another term one time at no charge as long as your original application is within three semesters of your new expected term of entry. Same is true if you are updating to an earlier term.

If you do not meet these two criteria, you will be required to submit a $75 application fee. You can pay online through the UTA website with Mastercard, Visa, American Express or Discover.
