University of Texas Academic Excellence Scholarship | Details
Students are awarded AES on the basis of overall academic accomplishments. All AES awards provide funds to defray some of the costs of UT Dallas tuition and mandatory fees. For out-of-state students, any AES award also qualifies the student for in-state tuition and fee rates.

- Applicants can request a hold on the review of their application file pending the submission of supplemental materials.
- Completed applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. During peak application periods, it can take four to six weeks for an application file to be reviewed.
