How to Apply (Undergraduate)

All freshman accepted into the College of Engineering enter as a General Engineering major and have the opportunity to apply for entry into a specific, degree-granting major (ie. Mechanical Engineering) beginning in their second semester.  Further inquiry regarding incoming freshman engineering students can be directed towards the Engineering Academic and Student Affairs Office.

Here is a checklist to follow about what steps you should take in the admission process.

1. Find information

The Office of Admissions and Records' Web site  provides important information about application deadlines and scholarships. You can also schedule a visit to our campus!

2. Apply

Fill out the Texas Common Application on the Web. For instructions, click on 'Things to Know' on the right of the Texas Common Application Web page.

3. Wait on status

The Office of Admissions and Records lets you check your application status and records online. It takes at least three weeks for the office to make a decision on an applicant's selection.

4. Confirm acceptance

After you get your acceptance packet in the mail, be sure to let us know you are accepting the admission offer. You can do that online or by returning the admission acceptance card you received in your packet. 

5. Sign up for a new student conference

New Student Conferences are mandatory to attend. You cannot register for classes if you haven't attended one. We encourage you to invite parents/guardians to the new student conferences.

6. Final steps

Please see After You're Admitted to find important information about AP, CLEP, financial aid, health insurance, housing, immunizations, part-time jobs and scholarships.

We can't wait to have you here!
