Your Application and the Application Decision
Successful applicants will be those who, in the judgment of the faculty admissions committees, show the greatest promise for success as graduate students in our program and as professionals after graduation. We do not employ arbitrary threshold or minimum values for such factors as GRE scores or GPA to determine which applications are evaluated for admission, nor do we have geographic preferences or quotas; all applications are considered carefully on the basis of all required materials mentioned above.
To find out the status of your application you can check your MyStatus Page.
Interviews are REQUIRED for M.A./Ph.D., Au.D/Ph.D. and Ph.D. applicants only. Master's and Doctor of Audiology applicants are NOT required to interview. If you wish to visit us, please make arrangements to attend our CSD Info Day in the Fall.
Admissions decisions are typically announced the second week of March prior to UT Austin closing for Spring Break. Decisions are announced on your MyStatus Page regarding our decision of either ‘ADMIT’ or ‘DENY’. Those students who may be placed on a 'waiting list' will have their admission decision posted on the MyStatus Page after all those admitted in early March have responded with a decision.
PLEASE NOTE: Applications for Teaching and Research Assistantships are announced in August to ONLY those students who are admitted and accept our offer. Those students who will receive an assistantship will be notified in August prior to Fall semester enrollment.
