International Applicants

English Language Evaluation

To better serve the needs of our international students and the faculty who work with them, all new international students with undergraduate degrees from non-English-speaking universities are required to undergo a brief evaluation for speaking and writing English (English Second Language evaluation).  The International Office will conduct the English language evaluation during International Student Orientation. This evaluation is done at no cost to the student. If the student does not pass one of the two evaluations, he/she will be required to take the designated English Second Language course the first semester at UT. If the student is required to take two English Second Language courses, he/she must take one course the first semester and the second course the next semester.

Financial Support

Financial support for international students is very limited. International applicants are reminded of the requirement of the University of Texas that they have sufficient funds in a bank account to cover their expenses. 

The International Office maintains current information regarding cost and financial requirements for international students. Please visit their web site for this information.

Additional information for International Applications is available from the International Student and Scholar Services office.
