Senate Bill 175, passed by the 81st Texas Legislature, allows The University of Texas at Austin to limit automatic admission to 75 percent of the university’s enrollment capacity designated for first-time resident undergraduate students.
The university has determined that it will automatically admit all eligible summer/fall 2021 and spring 2022 freshman applicants who rank within the top 6% of their high school graduating classes, with remaining spaces to be filled through holistic review. This percentage remains unchanged from last year. A letter from University President Gregory L. Fenves is attached to this correspondence.
This information should be shared with all high school junior-level students and their parents.
