Resources to help with your application process

Applicants are automatically considered for merit-based fellowships during the admissions review process as long as funds remain available. No additional application is required.

Test Scores
For the 2022–23 application cycle (Fall 2023 entry), the LBJ School is offering a one-time, temporary waiver of the GRE, due to the unique challenges brought on by COVID-19. The GRE is optional for this cycle only and applicants may submit a GRE score if they feel it will strengthen their application. Please email the LBJ Admissions Team at lbjadmit@austin.utexas.edu to let us know if you will be submitting a score.

International students also must submit TOEFL scores. We do not accept the IELTS. Visit UT's website for more information about test scores.
