High school seniors and incoming transfers—you can now apply to UTSA for Fall 2021!

UTSA is consistently recognized for its cultural diversity, research excellence and cutting-edge academics. It’s the largest university in San Antonio, with more than 32,000 students, and is one of the most affordable Texas public institutions located in a major metropolitan area.

UTSA offers a wide range of academic programs that are curated by award-winning faculty. The programs incorporate hands-on learning experiences into their curriculum, which has been shown to help college students transition from classroom to career. UTSA also works closely with local businesses to offer experiential learning opportunities that will help you obtain valuable skills for your future career.

UTSA is a great choice for students like you who are ready to invest in their Bold Future. If you apply early, you’ll have an admissions decision sooner, extra time to prepare for college and access to more funding opportunities.

Dr. Beverly Woodson Day, senior director of UTSA Undergraduate Recruitment, strongly recommends applying early to maximize your financial aid and scholarships. “One of the greatest benefits to applying early is that you’ll have access to more financial aid and scholarship opportunities than those who wait until later to apply.”

If you’re a student with exceptional scholastic achievement, then we recommend checking out UTSA’s merit-based scholarships like the Distinguished Presidential and Distinguished Transfer Scholarships. If you’re an incoming freshman, then you may also qualify for the UTSA Bold Promise program which covers tuition and fees 100% for fall and spring semesters for four years, as long as you continue to meet requirements.

You can explore UTSA majors for specialized information on each degree program and schedule a virtual campus tour to experience what UTSA has to offer, which could help you feel more self-assured when making an early admissions decision.

UTSA also offers region-specific admissions counselors to answer your college questions, provide resources and guide you through our admissions process.

You can apply now for the Fall 2021 semester at UTSA using either the ApplyTexas or Common App application. SAT/ACT admission requirements will be waived at UTSA from now until Spring 2022.
