(July 26, 2019) -- Now is the time for high school seniors and transfer students who want to apply early to UTSA for Fall 2020.
UTSA is a university of choice for students ready to invest in their future. With more than 32,000 students, UTSA is the largest university in the San Antonio metropolitan area. It is consistently recognized for research excellence and cutting-edge academics to prepare students for successful careers in the new global economy.
UTSA is also one of the most affordable Texas public universities in a major metropolitan area. It offers merit-based scholarships like the Distinguished Presidential and Distinguished Transfer Scholarships to incoming freshmen and transfer students who display exceptional scholastic achievement.
To maximize scholarship and financial aid opportunities, Beverly Woodson Day, senior director of UTSA Undergraduate Admissions, encourages prospective students to apply as early as possible.
“One major benefit for early applicants is that they’ll have access to more financial aid and scholarship opportunities than those who wait to apply later,” Day said.
UTSA is committed to student success and has a wide range of academic programs that are curated by award-winning faculty. The programs incorporate hands-on learning experiences into its curriculum, which has been shown to help students transition effectively from classroom to career. Located in the second fastest-growing city in the nation, UTSA works hand-in-hand with local businesses to offer the best in these experiential learning opportunities.
Future Roadrunners are encouraged to explore UTSA majors for specialized information about each degree program and to schedule a campus tour to experience what UTSA has to offer firsthand, which could help them feel more confident in making an early admissions decision.
Prospective students can apply now for the Fall 2020 semester at UTSA using the ApplyTexas application. ApplyTexas is the online portal that incoming undergraduate students use to apply to Texas public universities.
UTSA also offers region-specific admissions counselors to answer college questions, provide resources and guide incoming students through the admission process.
