Coronavirus (COVID-19): Admissions FAQ

Texas Law is working in partnership with The University of Texas officials to monitor and prepare for COVID-19. Although the University’s coronavirus website will continue to be the primary source of information about the institution’s overall preparations for and response to the coronavirus, the following questions and answers are designed to provide additional information regarding admissions. We will continue to update these FAQs as new information becomes available.

 

  1. Are the admissions and financial aid offices fully operating and open?

    While our offices are closed to the public, we are all working remotely and fully operational during regular business hours.

  2. Will I be able to visit the law school on my own even though the admissions office is closed?

    Unfortunately, the law school will be closed to the public through the summer. Once the University reopens to the public, we welcome your visit!
