UT and the Common App situation?

Hey fam! So I'm looking at my college list and trying to figure out logistics. Does UT accept the Common App? UT is one of my top choices and I'd like to know if I can use my Common App for them or need to prepare for a separate application process.

The University of Texas at Austin, which is often what people mean when they refer to 'UT', does not use the Common Application. Instead, UT Austin uses the ApplyTexas platform or their own Texas Admissions application. You will need to prepare a separate application if you're applying to UT Austin. It's crucial to familiarize yourself with the different essay prompts and requirements for ApplyTexas or the UT application, as they may differ from those on the Common App. Remember to keep track of the deadlines and give yourself plenty of time to craft well-thought-out responses to the UT-specific essays. If you're referring to another UT system school or an out-of-state school with the initials UT, you may want to check that specific university's admissions website for accurate information.
