Together with colleagues across campus — including those in Enrollment Management and Student Success and throughout UT’s colleges, schools, and units — Student Success Initiatives leverages its use of predictive analytics to identify incoming students who can benefit from scholarship funds, co-enrollment opportunities, academic support programs, peer mentoring programs, and more.
Every incoming Longhorn is invited to be part of a 360 Connection — a group of approximately 20 first-year students who meet weekly to discuss their college experiences.
Approximately 2,000 freshmen, identified through predictive analytics, join success programs within UT’s colleges, schools, and units each year, including:
- Discovery Scholars, School of Undergraduate Studies
- Foundation Scholars, College of Liberal Arts
- Gateway Scholars, Division of Diversity and Community Engagement
- McCombs Success Scholars, McCombs School of Business
- Moody College Success Scholars, Moody College of Communication
- Ramshorn Scholars, Cockrell School of Engineering
- Texas Education Scholars, College of Education
- Texas Interdisciplinary Program (TIP), College of Natural Sciences
A partnership between UT and Austin Community College, Path to Admission Through Co-Enrollment (PACE) gives students the opportunity to attend small classes in a supportive learning environment and at the same time gain access to game-changing resources available only at a world-class university.
The Texas Advance Commitment is the university’s commitment to ensuring a UT education is even more affordable for Texas students. By making financial aid more transparent, the Texas Advance Commitment helps students with financial need understand that they will receive financial assistance. Completion Scholarships, Impact Scholarships, Presidential Scholars, and the University Leadership Network all are signature scholarship programs through which Texas Advance Commitment funds can be awarded.
