Student Success

Ensuring our students have the opportunity to complete a world-class education within four years is an essential part of UT Austin's commitment to serve the people of Texas. Students who graduate in four years begin their careers or pursue graduate education sooner than their peers while incurring less student loan debt. 

The university proudly sends our graduates into the world as representatives of the university while gaining additional capacity for new students — increasing fiscal responsibility through efficiency.
