Academic Success Programs

Foundation Scholars Program

An academic transition program for highly motivated first-year students. 


The Path to Admission through Co-Enrollment (PACE) program offers alternate entrance to The University of Texas at Austin to select students. PACE participants spend their freshman year on the Forty Acres part-time, taking one class per semester at the university while completing the majority of their coursework at nearby Austin Community College (ACC) – Rio Grande.

Student Communities

There will always be a need for strong, ethical leadership; it’s a quality that employers want, and our society needs. A Liberal Arts education allows students to discover their leadership talents and build skills in management, decision-making, teambuilding, and more.

With over 1,000 student organizations on campus, there are endless ways to get involved with a project, initiative, subject, or interest you are passionate about. Check out HornsLink to discover all that student groups at UT Austin have to offer.
