UT EID Self-Service Tools

What can this site help me do?

The UT EID is your online account at The University of Texas at Austin and other University of Texas institutions. Everyone who deals with the university online should have one. Click the links below to see what the UT EID will help you do.

expand Prospective Students

You need a UT EID to sign up for a campus visit, Longhorn Saturday, or Rise and Shine. Once you apply, you'll need it to check your admissions status and to complete many other pre-admissions activities. The Be a Longhorn site can help you with all these activities.

You may already have a UT EID if you made the university a recipient of your test scores such as SAT, ACT or GRE. Use the tools listed to the left to find your UT EID or manage your UT EID if you already have one.

If you applied to the university online in the last 1-2 business days, a UT EID will be e-mailed to you. Please wait until you receive this before completing additional departmental applications. Creating a second EID may delay the proessing of your application. More information can be found at Apply Online.
