UT Austin Application: Common App or not?

Hi friends, Junior here getting a headstart on apps and I have my eye on UT Austin. I'm a little confused about which application platform they use. So, does UT Austin utilize the Common App for their admissions process, or will I need to go through a different system entirely?

Hello! It's wonderful to hear that you're taking the initiative on your college applications early. The University of Texas at Austin does not use the Common Application. Instead, they have their own platform called ApplyTexas. Some Texas universities use this system to streamline the application process for in-state and out-of-state students alike.

With ApplyTexas, you can apply to several Texas colleges at once if you're considering multiple options within the state. Make sure to familiarize yourself with the ApplyTexas application early on, as it may have different essay prompts and requirements than the Common App, and you don't want to be scrambling to fill thing in at the last minute. It's also a good idea to check the UT Austin admissions website for any specific guidelines they might have outside of the standard ApplyTexas application.

Best of luck with your application preparations!
