Please note that this is just a way to keep all the links in one place. This is NOT an official document. I have obviously tried to be accurate, but make no promises, and at best, the information is incomplete. Use at your own peril.
Our application requirements are listed here, and the online application is available here. The application deadlines are listed here. Students who are interested in focusing on creative writing should apply for the HUAS track, and students who want to do work in translation studies should apply for the HUSL concentration. Information about tuition and fees can be found here, and financial aid information is available here (teaching assistantships) and here (federal financial aid, scholarships, etc).
If you need to change your application, fill out this form. If you are accepted to the program and need to defer admission, fill out this form and send to us for approval. We then forward the deferral document to admissions for processing.
You can find discussions about the respective programs and the degree plans here, but as you will see, the degree plan lists what kinds of classes you have to take, not the classes available to choose from. To find out what is offered each semester, see the course descriptions or look at the UT Dallas Course Lookup, which let you perform searches for classes, topics, professors, etc.You can find a list of our faculty here.
Once you have been admitted, you must first accept admission (in Galaxy) and make sure you have submitted proof of meningitis vaccination (or proof of not having to show vaccination). Then you contact the Graduate Academic Advisor to set up a meeting for initial advising and registration. You also need to set up your NetID and UTD email. When you are registered you should go to the Info Depot to get your Comet Card and if you are planning to park on campus you also need a parking pass.
If you are not able to register on your own, contact the A&H Graduate Advisor (organized classes), or the Graduate Coordinator (independent study and thesis/dissertation hours). Students in the ATEC or EMAC programs should consult this page to find out who to contact. Otherwise, consult your degree plan, the course descriptions, and then go to Galaxy to register. Here you can also check things like grades, previous coursework, and program designation.
Please note you will not be allowed to register until the day and time of your “enrollment appointment.” Check the academic calendar to find out when the enrollment appointments will be posted and then go to Orion on that day to find out when YOU can register.
Use the academic calendar, and our list of important deadlines to keep track of when to do what. If you are doing a thesis or dissertation, make sure you check the guidelines both on the A&H web site and those set by the Office of Graduate Studies.
The rules and regulations for your degree and degree plan are explained in the Catalog. The catalog in force the semester you started a program governs your situation.
Make sure you (will) have finished all requirements by the end of the semester you plan to graduate, and apply for graduation by the posted deadline. A helpful Graduation checklist is available here. Make sure to check your UTD email regularly for updates and information about graduation, commencement, and diplomas. Information about diploma names and distribution is available here.
