Transfer

Applicants who have previously completed college-level coursework at an accredited institution (excluding the summer following high school graduation) will be reviewed individually and holistically for admission as a transfer student. Consideration is given to factors such as cumulative GPA, overall academic coursework and performance; preparation for and ability to be successful in intended major; and information provided in the resume, essay and/or letters of recommendation.

Applicants are eligible for assured transfer admission by meeting all of the following criteria of 42 or more transferable credit hours with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 (no more than 90 attempted hours) and must be in good standing with the last college or university attended.
 

Additional Information

At UT Dallas, the Office of Financial Aid helps to remove financial barriers, assists students with the cost of attendance and strives to provide students with the federal, state and institutional financial assistance. The application period for financial aid begins October 1 of each year for the following academic year (fall, spring, summer). The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available online at fafsa.gov. Residents of Texas who are ineligible to receive federal aid may qualify for assistance through the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA). Information for eligibility is available at www.collegeforalltexans.com. Learn about financial aid opportunities at utdallas.edu/finaid.

Prospective freshmen students, who are admitted to UT Dallas by the priority deadline, are automatically reviewed for an Academic Excellence Scholarship (AES) award. The Comet Transfer Scholarship is available to qualified first time-undergraduate transfer students who have earned 30–90 transferable semester credit hours. Scholarships are subject to fund availability, and some scholarship programs provide funding throughout the student’s undergraduate or graduate career provided the student meets continuing eligibility requirements. Learn more about these and other scholarships at utdallas.edu/scholarships.
