Admission Checklist

Getting into college isn't easy. There are applications, essays, forms, tests, transcripts — and you're winding up high school, too. But we can help make it easier with this checklist for getting into the College of Engineering.

1. Do your homework

Ugh, more homework — but it's worth it. Check out the Office of Admissions website. It has lots of important information, like deadlines and scholarships. And plan a visit to our campus to come see for yourself what the big whoop is about!

2. Apply

Submit the Apply Texas application or the Coalition application online. Contact your regional admissions advisor or email us at with any questions.

3. Wait

The waiting is the hardest part. That's why the Office of Admissions lets you check your application and records online. But keep in mind that it takes at least three weeks to decide on your application.

4. R.S.V.P.

After you get your acceptance packet in the mail (Congrats!), be sure to tell us you're coming by accepting your admission offer online or returning the admission acceptance card you got in your packet. We'll save a place for you.

5. Sign up for a New Student Conference

New Student Conferences are a must. You can't register for classes if you don't go to one. And bring your parents! We'd love to meet them, and they will be a big help as you prepare for your college years.

6. Work out the details

AP, CLEP, financial aid, health insurance, housing, immunizations, part-time jobs, scholarships — check out Now That You're Admitted to find out important information about these details and more.
