How to apply for admission to the Tax Certificate program

The following are the typical steps in the admission process:

1. Complete a 'Special Student' application form
Individuals seeking admission to the Tax Certificate program should complete a 'Special Student' application rather than a 'Degree Seeking' student application. Special student application forms can be: (1) accessed and completed online at the Graduate Admissions Center, or (2) requested from the Graduate Admissions Center for manual completion and submission via mail, or (3) obtained from the University's Graduate Admission Office in Davis Hall (room 333) or Graduate Studies office on the first floor of the College of Business (room 107) and manually completed and submitted via mail.

Note 1: The application process should be completed by the deadlines published by the university. Application deadlines are published on the website for the Graduate School under the Deadlines link.

Note 2: Admission as a Special Student is valid for one semester only and must be renewed via the application process each semester. Consult the graduate accounting advisor for more detailed information.

2. Pay the application evaluation fee
A non-refundable application evaluation charge is required for all U.S. citizens and resident aliens with no foreign college or university work. A non-refundable application evaluation charge is also required for all non-immigrant international applicants, U.S. Citizens and U.S. resident aliens with foreign college or university work. Payment may be made with a money order, bank-imprinted personalized check, or bank draft payable in U.S. dollars made payable to UT-Arlington. For further details please contact the Graduate School.


3. Arrange for the submission of official transcripts
An applicant should have official transcripts sent from each college or university attended. These transcripts must be sent from school to school directly and cannot be delivered by the student. The mailing address for submission of official transcripts is:
