How to Apply to Plan II Honors will open for Fall 2017 applications on August 1

Application deadline for Fall applicants:  December 1

October 15 is the date by which we recommend Plan II applicants complete their ApplyTexas and the honors applications.  The deadline is a "soft" internal deadline.  Nothing relating to the Plan II Honors application closes or cuts-off on October 15.  This date is there to remind Plan II applicants that Plan II conducts rolling admissions.  And, Plan II reviews applications in the order that the applications are completed.  The later an applicant completes the application, the later that application will be reviewed.  Plan II Honors can only admit students that are admitted to UT Austin.  Plan II admission offers are non-binding and non-exclusive regardless of the date of the offer of admission

Submitting an application on or before October 15 will not guarantee early notification or increase the likelihood of admission.
