The application fee is $75. You can pay it with a credit card on the ApplyTexas application. If you do not pay the application fee through ApplyTexas, you can pay by credit card over the phone at 817-272-MAVS or by check or money order in person or through the mail.

3. Submit your transcripts, test scores, and documents
Once you’ve applied for admission, we’ll need you to submit your transcripts and other official documents to the Office of Admissions.

  • Submit your official college transcript(s) from all colleges and universities you’ve attended. The best and fastest method is electronically–sent directly from your college(s). However, UTA Office of Admissions will also accept transcripts by mail or in person. Transcripts older than 6 months will not be accepted.
  • If you have not earned 24 transferable college hours, you must also submit:
    • Your official high school transcript from your high school.
    • Your SAT or ACT scores.
  • Note about transferring credit: Shortly after you’ve been admitted to the University, your transfer credits will be evaluated and posted to your MyMav Student Center.
