Information and assistance through Other Events
The Office of Admissions offers lots of opportunities for you to learn about the University and to receive the information and assistance you need to complete the admissions process.
Your UT Austin admissions counselor tries each fall to bring our campus to yours, through a Day Visit. At a Day Visit, you can get to know your admissions counselor; find out about special programs, opportunities, and resources available to you; and learn how to apply for admissions, housing, and financial aid. Seniors who are applying to UT Austin can even submit parts of their application to admissions counselors during Day Visits.
Wondering how you’ll get everything turned in on time? Consider an Application Round-Up to hand deliver updated information and items remaining to complete your application. Admissions counselors are on hand to collect materials and to answer any questions you and your parents have about UT Austin.
College Days / College Nights
Admissions counselors attend these school-wide and city-wide programs across Texas to deliver the information you need. Some College Days or Nights are "information fairs"; others involve more formal presentations or Q&A sessions about admissions, housing, and financial aid. To find out about College Days and College Nights in your community, log in to Be a Longhorn each time you visit.
Becoming a Longhorn is so special that some Texas communities hold summertime programs designed to introduce you to your local Longhorn community before "sending you off" to Austin. You’ll receive insider information on the University from other incoming freshman, current UT Austin students, Texas Exes (alumni), and admissions and university representatives. Fellow Longhorns can be great connections when you're looking for internships, advice, scholarships, or jobs after college, so get to know your hometown Longhorns early!
