CV Application Process
Incoming freshman to The University of Texas at Dallas who meet the following requirements are encouraged to apply to Collegium V:
- An SAT score of 1410 or higher (1350 or higher on critical reading and math sections taken prior to March 2016) or ACT composite score of 31 or higher
- A high school grade point average of 3.6 or class rank in the top 10%
Students must be accepted to UT Dallas before their applications will be considered. Complete applications received by the priority deadline of February 1 will receive an initial response by February 12. We will continue admitting students on a rolling basis until the class is full, generally in late spring.
Eligible students are invited to email CollegiumV@utdallas.edu to request access to the application. Once access is granted, an Honors College folder will appear in the student’s Orion Self Service menu as pictured below. The application and subsequent status page can be accessed in this folder.
The application consists of two tabs:
- The Demo/Acad info tab: Information on this tab is populated from your ApplyTexas application, transcripts, and test scores sent to the university. If any of the information is incorrect, please contact the Office of Admission and Enrollment Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The Essay tab: Please enter your supplemental information as requested here in addition to the required essay. In addition, please note that all applicants are REQUIRED to submit names and email addresses for two recommendation providers. Once the application is submitted, the applicant’s recommenders will receive a request for a recommendation directly from us.
Applicants can save their application at any point and come back to it at a later date, if desired.
Once all required information has been completed, click the “Submit Your Application” button at the bottom of the Essay tab.
Applicants will receive an email notification confirming submission of their application. Please note that applications are not considered complete and will not be reviewed until both letters of recommendation have been received.
Checking Your Collegium V Application Status
To check the status of your Collegium V application at any point after submission, navigate to the Honors College folder within the Orion Self Service area in Galaxy and select the Collegium V Honors Status link.
The top of the page shows your biographical and academic information. The bottom of the page displays your Collegium V status.
To see the status of your Letters of Recommendation, click the “Letters of Recommendation” link at the bottom of the page. Once a recommendation letter has been received, this page will update automatically.
If for some reason you need to withdraw your application, you may select the “Please withdraw me from consideration” button at the bottom of the page. This will immediately withdraw your application from consideration.
If you have any questions about the application process, please contact the program through:
