The University of Texas at Austin Automatic Admission Policy

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 2024 and spring 2025 freshman applicants who rank within the top six percent (6%) of their high school graduating classes, with remaining spaces to be filled through holistic review. This remains unchanged since the last school year. A letter from University President ad interim Jay Hartzell is attached to this correspondence.
