As an international student, there are several steps and procedures that must be done prior to your acceptance. But before we begin, let's make sure you are an international student. If you meet all of the requisites below, you are considered international.
For application purposes, international students are defined as:
Not holding U.S. permanent residence status
Holding a non-immigrant Visa (e.g. F-1, H-4, E-2, L-2)
If you currently reside in the U.S., but do not hold an official immigration status, please go to the Texas Overview
site for more information. If you qualify for the Senate Bill 1528 Affidavit,
please submit a signed and notarized copy to the admissions office. This along with your official High School transcripts and official test scores will complete your application.
