Submitting Your Application


  1. Complete the ApplyTexas application
  2. Pay the application fee
  3. You will then receive an email with an EID and temporary password
  4. Using your EID and temporary password, log into MyStatus and upload the required supporting materials (i.e. writing sample, personal statement, transcripts).Your application is not complete until you have uploaded your supporting materials.

Please note there are two separate application procedures that need to be completed: the ApplyTexas application and uploading your supporting materials through MyStatus. After you've uploaded your materials, you can check the status of your application through MyStatus. Due to the high number of applications, the English Office cannot confirm the receipt of individual items. Applicants should check MyStatus in the Application Status Check to see admissions decisions. Decisions are usually made no later than March 15.

As many as two days can pass between your submission of the ApplyTexas application and your receipt of the email with your EID and password to log into the Application Status Check. Please be patient and plan to submit your application with this process in mind. If you do not receive the email with your EID and temporary password after two business days, please feel free to contact GIAC or the department, but it is not helpful to do so any earlier.



Our applications are currently closed. Check back here for updated Fall 2021 application deadlines.
