The University of Texas at Austin - Automatic Admissions 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 2022 and spring 2023 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.

New University Information

New University of Texas Major

Are your students interested in a human-centered approach to data, information and technology? Encourage them to select Informatics as their first-choice major when applying for Fall 2021 freshman admission to The University of Texas at Austin!


Informatics is the study, design and application of computer and information technology from a user-centered perspective and for the first year ever, our School of Information, or iSchool, is offering two undergraduate degrees in this cutting-edge field — a bachelor of arts and a bachelor of science. Students will be able to select from six major concentrations: human-centered data science and user experience (UX) design, or, coming soon, social justice informatics, health informatics, cultural heritage informatics, and social informatics.


Students will learn to extract meaning from data, design effective information experiences, and evaluate the impacts of new technologies on individuals, organizations and society in one of the premier research and education information programs in the nation. They can change the world as one of our first undergraduate informatics majors!
