Apply for Texas Orange Jackets membership!




The Fall 2020 Texas Orange Jackets application is now LIVE. The deadline to apply is Friday, September 11, 2020 at 5 PM.

Welcome prospective members! Texas Orange Jackets seeks new members that are dedicated to the OJ tenets of service, leadership, scholarship, and community.


We require all applicants to have:

  • at least two in-residence long semesters completed at the time of the application

  • the intent to remain enrolled and in-residence for at least 3 long semesters at the University (usually applicants are in their second or third year at UT)

    • For the Fall 2020 application cycle only: Applicants who will not be "in-residence" for Fall 2020 or Spring 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic may ​still apply.

  • a passion for our four tenets, service, leadership, scholarship, and community.


The OJ Vice President of Membership will verify that all applicants meet these requirements before the new member selection process begins.


The application includes essays and short answer questions. Take care to read the application instructions. There will be a Facebook page for prospective members to join and ask questions about the application process, as well as several information sessions and events where applicants can interact with current OJs during the first weeks of the fall semester. 


Folks who score well on the application portion of the process will be invited to interview with the Orange Jacket Selection Committee, and a portion of interviewees will be invited to join Texas Orange Jackets. All prospective applicants should know that there is no cookie cutter OJ, and we encourage all women and non-binary individuals who are UT students with a passion for service, leadership, scholarship, and community to apply!

Questions about the application or the information listed above should be directed to Cathy Preciado, Vice President of Membership.
