    To whom it may concern:
    I am currently a Connecticut resident, and am looking to move to Austin Texas in August. I am wondering if their is a time line for applying to classes at the school. I plan on using my post 9/11 GI bill, as I am a discharged veteran. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
