Dual Degree Admissions

In order to enroll in a dual degree program, students must be admitted to both programs of interest. It is recommended that prospective students review the detailed requirements for the dual degree they are interested in and then contact the relevant program director. To apply for admission to a dual degree program, an applicant must select the correct dual degree on the ApplyTexas application, follow the application instructions for each degree program, and meet all application deadlines for each degree program.

If an applicant is not admitted to the dual degree program, he or she may be offered admission to an individual degree program.
