What is an Application ID number and why is it important?

It is a unique number assigned to each application you save and/or submit. You must include your application ID (along with other identifying information) on any correspondence with the ApplyTexas Help Desk or with the university or college to which you apply. This will ensure the person with whom you are corresponding will be able to accurately locate your application information.

How do I obtain an Application ID?

When you complete and successfully save the first page of the application, the ID will be assigned to your application automatically.

An application is missing from my application listing.

Applications that are saved but not submitted are deleted from our system after 90 days. Submitted applications are retained until after the semester has begun for which the application was submitted. If your application was over 90 days old, was not saved or submitted, and the application semester has passed, it was automatically deleted from ApplyTexas and you will not be able to retrieve it.
