The University of Texas at Austin has a long history of commitment to access for first-generation college students. Over the last several years, the university also has made a strong commitment to increase first-generation student success through efforts to support timely graduation. The First-Generation Commitment Working Group was assembled to make clear and achievable the goal of both access and success (timely graduation) for all first-generation students.
The core purpose of The University of Texas at Austin, to transform lives for the benefit of society, depends upon enrolling an excellent, high-potential undergraduate student body that is racially, ethnically, geographically, and economically diverse. In Fall 2017, a Strategic Enrollment Management Faculty Working Group (SEM Working Group) was assembled, bringing faculty from colleges, schools, and units across campus together to consider principles that should guide a new undergraduate student enrollment management strategy in line with the core purpose and values of the university.
Since November 2019, a campus-wide committee, including faculty, staff, and students, has been meeting to review the processes that could be streamlined and remove stress and barriers for student tuition payments, including the timing of tuition billing, minimum amount due, and disbursement of financial aid and scholarships. The updates being implemented were recommended by the Work Group and approved by campus leadership this past fall.
An Internal Transfer Policy Working Group established November 2019- March 2020 was charged to create recommendations for modifying the internal transfer process at UT. As part of the recommendations from that working group, it was agreed upon that there should be one centralized internal transfer application, a holistic review score created by Admissions, and final decisions made by CSUs. The Office of Admissions gathered data in Fall 2020 to help understand the current state of application structure, applicants and timelines. In Spring 2021, the Office of Admissions will convene an Internal Transfer Implementation Committee to move forward with implementing the recommendations.
