Notice to International Applicants
The University requires a $90.00 processing fee from all international
applicants. This fee cannot be waived or deferred until your
arrival in the United States. If you know someone already in
the U.S. who can pay the fee for you, please contact him/her.
The Graduate and International Admissions Center will NOT
process your application until the fee is paid.
The $90.00 fee is a University requirement, not a departmental
requirement, and we regret that we are unable to pay the fee
As of September 1988, all international students who request
financial aid in the form of a teaching assistantship will have
their English skills tested by the International Office upon
arrival. This is in addition to the TOEFL
test you should have already taken prior to your admission. If
the tests indicate that additional English courses are required
before you can become a Teaching Assistant, then you (not the
Astronomy Department) may be asked to take the additional English
courses at your own expense.
Additional Information for International Students can be obtained
from the University
of Texas International Office. Also, read the Brochure
for Prospective International Students.
