Step 1

  • Take GRE or MCAT/PCAT/DAT/OAT. For the GRE, Send official scores using the reference UT Austin code: 6882, no department code is necessary. Scores must be sent from Educational Testing Service (ETS).  For other graduate level exams including the MCAT, PCAT, OAT, or DAT, upload documentation of MCAT scores to your application as a supplemental document. 
    • **Due to COVID-19, the GRE Exam is optional for the incoming class of Fall 2021. Applicants that wish to turn in GRE results are welcome to do so, but the test is not required**
  • International applicants must take TOEFL or IELTS. Send official TOEFL or IELTS scores using the UT Austin code 6882. Scores must be sent from ETS. If you hold bachelor’s degree from a U.S. institution or from an institution in another English-only country, you will receive a waiver of the TOEFL. For more information see Admissions for International Students regarding TOEFL scores and international graduate student admission.
