Important Dates

When applying to McCombs Business Honors Program, please take note of these important dates when preparing your BHP application. 
  • August 1:  Application opens
  • December 1:  BHP and UT Admission application deadline

Please note that we no longer have an October 15 priority deadline. BHP will release decisions on a rolling basis. It is suggested that students complete their application by November 1. Students who do so may receive their decision earlier. Feel free to contact the BHP program office if you have questions. 

Priority Deadline - October 15

Students who complete their application on or before October 15 will be considered for the BHP Priority Deadline. This first group of applicants will receive communication before the regular decision pool. Students who applied by the BHP Priority Deadline will be evaluated under the same criteria as students who have applied by the regular deadline. The possibility of admission will neither be negatively or positively influenced. The benefit of applying by the BHP Priority Deadline is earlier notification of the status of your application (typically early to mid-December). Some portion of these applicants will be given the status of "defer," to allow us to evaluate their application against the larger pool of applicants who apply by December 1. Deferred applicants will receive their final status of admitted or denied by March 1. 

If admitted, this is a non-binding admissions decision. Students will not be required to enroll in UT, McCombs, or BHP. 

Apply Now


BHP has a limited number of merit-based scholarships to award each year. Every BHP applicant will be considered for these scholarships. There is no separate application for BHP scholarships.

There are scholarships available through the Texas Exes for entering freshmen. You must apply for these scholarships by December 1 through the Texas Exes website. Applicants interested in the Forty Acres Scholars Program must select to apply for that program and write an additional essay.

Find out more about tuition and funding by visiting the McCombs BBA page.
